Devon Elders & Overseers


In June 2018, in the absence of any name to serve for a three year period, we agreed to appoint Devon's Elders & Overseers convenor on a rolling basis. This Friend will be appointed at the AM Elders and Overseers meeting and serve until the close of the subsequent meeting. 

From October 2018 to February 2019 the convenor is Frances Link (Kingsbridge meeting).

John Southern (Torbay Meeting) has been appointed in the role of Assistant clerk for each meeting in order to keep continuity of clerkship and to circulate information. They welcome your questions about any aspects of the group's work.


Meetings for Worship for Business 2019  (two meetings, on the third Saturday of Feb and October)

To be held at Exeter Friends Meeting House off Magdalen Street, Wynards Lane, Exeter, EX2 4HU.   

Saturday 16th February 2019:

Refreshments at 10.30 for an 11am start. Please take your own packed lunch.

Agendas and Documents in Advance will be circulated prior to each meeting.

Saturday 19th October 2019:

Refreshments at 10.30 for an 11am start. Please take your own packed lunch. 
We are hoping to arrange at least part of the day to take the form of a learning session, with a visiting Friend.


Learning and Sharing Days

 It is proposed that instead of the third meeting we have customarily held on the third Saturday of June, we experiment with holding more local gatherings of Elders and Overseers during the summer months. We invite suggestions as to the organisation of these occasions, between small groups of neighbouring Local Meetings.

For the time being, we will keep the booking of Exeter Meeting House on Saturday 15th June until further decisions have been made.

DAM Local Resources

Below are documents referred to in our Meetings that DAM Elders and Overseers may find useful.
Devon AM have asked Elders & Overseers to bring names forward to the Nominations group Nominations to serve on the "Helping Meetings in Conflict Group"
There is a budget for skills training (such as a weekend in Woodbrooke in Autumn 2019).  The document below sets out the purpose, work and constitution of the group.
