Ireland Yearly Meeting
General Christian Counsel



The Religious Society of Friends is rooted in Christianity and has always found inspiration in the life and teachings of Jesus. How do you interpret your faith in the light of this heritage? How does Jesus speak to you today? Are you following Jesus’ example of love in action? Are you learning from his life the reality and cost of obedience to God? How does his relationship with God challenge and inspire you?

Dear F/friends, please note that online Meeting for Worship, via zoom has now shifted its start time from 10am each Sunday to the new time slot of 10:45am, to match the Meeting for Worship in the Meeting House. This is with a view to hosting a "blended" Meeting for Worship for both formats when COVID 19 restrictions permit this to happen. In the meantime technologies are being tested each week to enable this to happen.
