For over a hundred years Yorkshire Quakers have come together over the Easter period to spend a few days living in an all age Quaker community. While there have been numerous changes the basic content of the time spent together has remained similar with periods for worship, sessions considering particular topics of interest to Quakers, outdoor walks and social activities. As Local Meetings have tended to reduce in size the Easter Settlement experience has become richer, providing a community dynamic that many individual Quaker Meetings can no longer provide.
Each year there is a different theme, led by one or more invited speakers. The theme usually allows learning, discussion and exploration of something relevant to Quakers living in the world today.
A small committee plans and makes the arrangements for Easter Settlement with the programme being made available in January each year.

In order to organise the Settlement we need to know the likely number of people who will be attending.

Children and young people of all ages are very welcome; some parts of the programme will be age specific. These places are supported by Quakers in Yorkshire.
