Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends


We expect the 2022 Gathering to be held at Radford University in Radford, VA, from July 3-July 9, 2022. 

The workshop proposal form closed October 31, 2021. Check back in early winter for the list of workshops at the 2022 Gathering!

Workshops offer Gathering adults and high school participants the opportunity to be immersed in a topic with other interested Friends. Friends stay in the same workshop throughout the week, forming a small community within the Gathering. Each workshop meets in person from 9:00 to 11:45AM, Monday-Friday during Gathering. Most workshops include daily worship or worship sharing. 

We are planning to offer several online-only workshop options as well at the 2022 Gathering. Online-only workshops would take place Monday-Friday in the afternoon Eastern, for 2 hours each day (exact time TBD.)
