Monthly Special Collection

Throughout their history, Quakers have been deeply concerned with questions of peace, social justice and responsibility . The interests of Abingdon Quakers are reflected in the Meeting's support for charities.

Each month the Meeting makes a special collection for a charity in which a member has a particular interest. We are curretly supporting Oxford Research Group. ORG is an independent organisation whose mission is to promote approaches to defence, development and foreign policies that are inclusive, accountable, sustainable and effective. We thus work to transform the way that people and policy-makers think about security, seeking to break out of the cycle of conflict and violence.
