Jamaica Yearly Meeting invites all Friends to their 75th Anniversary Yearly Meeting
I am excited to be writing you on behalf of the Jamaica Yearly Meeting Planning Committee to share with you the awesome plans we are making for our 75th Yearly Meeting – Diamond Jubilee Celebration! Since it is our 75th Yearly Meeting we are changing some things around and adding some very special surprises. It is going to be spectacular!
In order to make our 75th Yearly Meeting a special time of celebration, we would like to invite representatives from your yearly meeting to join us at the Swift Purscell Conference Centre in Highgate, St. Mary, from August 19-21, 2016. We are extending a special invitation to anyone who has had any previous relationship with Jamaica Yearly Meeting, which could include pastoral service, missionary service, serving on a short term mission team, etc.
The highlight of our 75th Yearly Meeting will be our Diamond Jubilee Worship Service on Sunday morning, August 21, at 10:00 AM, with Colin Saxton, FUM General Secretary, as our special speaker.
This service will be held at Highgate Friends Church. You won’t want to miss it!
If you are planning to attend, kindly inform us of your desire to be a part of our celebration so we may make the necessary arrangements for lodging and meals. If you are unable to attend or send a representative, we have a number of activities that we are soliciting sponsors for, including a movie night with snacks and popcorn, an ice cream social, and Young Friends activities. Please let us know if you would be interested in sponsoring one of these events.
As more details become available, we will share the exciting updates with you. Please pray for the planning committee as we endeavour to plan and carry out this very special celebration.
