Clearness Committees

What is a Clearness Committee?

Five Quakers gathered for a meeting

A clearness committee is a group of about five people that can be convened at the request of an individual to address spiritual concerns or personal issues and to assist individuals in finding a way forward. They meet at least once, but meet more often as needed. Also, Clearness Committees are formed to clear a person or couple for recording membership or marriage.

Clearness Committees for membership are arranged by the Membership and Outreach Committee; other clearness committees are arranged by Worship and Pastoral Care. If you are interested in having a Clearness Committee, contact the clerk of these committees.
