NFPB in Glasgow - worship, witness and discussion

Two years on from the killing of MP Jo Cox (and when NFPB also met in Scotland), we began our meeting this June on the day of the Great Get Together , an idea of the Jo Cox Foundation. Reflecting on the theme of getting together, Friends reaffirmed the value of hearing one another, gaining insights from different perspectives but also being energised and challenged to be more than we are alone.

NFPB statement on Glasgow Arms Fair

As a body representing peace concerns of Quakers from across Scotland, as well as the North of England and North Wales, we unite with those who have already voiced opposition to the holding of the Underwater Defence Technology (UDT) event in Glasgow from 26th June. We understand that the programme has involvement of companies linked to Trident and its successor, and that these also feature as areas of discussion during the conference.
