Quaker Focus

Quaker Focus is produced by the Christchurch Quakers and  is on air at 9 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday each month. We are part of the global Quaker family - a radical spiritual group with roots in the 17th century. 

Quakers try to see the good in everybody, and value the insights from the world's various spiritual and ethical traditions. Over the centuries, Quakers have been involved in a wide range of social changes, consistent with their values - such as anti-slavery, prison reform, peace and disarmament. 

Quaker Focus provides a glimpse into Quaker life and values in 21st century New Zealand. After an initial introductory programme, we will look at the impact of our key values on our lives, and their relevance in today's world.  These values (which we call testimonies) include Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Sustainability.

The programmes are introduced and produced by Michael Winter, who has been associated with Quakers for over 40 years in the U.K. and New Zealand. Michael will be chairing discussions with 2 or 3 Quakers in each episode.

 We hope you can join us. If you want to find out more about Quakers, please call Michael on 021 225 8620, or visit QuakeCityQuakers on Facebook.  The national website is www.quaker.org.nz. We meet every Sunday at 10.30 a.m. at the Quaker Centre, 217 Ferry Road. Do come and meet us!
