We warmly welcome you to register online for our 2020 Triennial, July 12-18th in Kisumu, Kenya! Join with us as we come together in worship and fellowship, abide in Christ's presence, and go back out into all the world. Online registration is available here for the Triennial itself, and will be available shortly for Pre- and Post-Triennial travel options. Detailed information about schedules, fees, and activities can be found here.
The unified spiritual message for the 2020 Triennial is Come. Abide. Go., which is taken from the calls and commissions of Jesus. Friends United Meeting (FUM), Quaker Men International (QMI), and United Society for Friends Women International (USFWI) will unite for one Triennial, with one theme in three parts.
QMI’s program will revolve around Christ’s invitation in Matt. 4:19: “Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” FUM’s program will be guided by John 15:4: “Abide in me, and I will abide in you.” And USFWI has adopted its theme from Matthew 28:19: “Go and make disciples of all nations." Come. Abide. Go.
The Triennial week will begin with a worship experience planned by all three groups. This worship gathering will introduce the themes and spiritual message for the week. It will be a way of spiritually positioning Friends to hear afresh Christ’s invitational call to to come and to abide, and his commission to go. The Triennial week will end with another shared worship experience. We envision this to be an intentional service of commissioning prayer as Friends, energized and equipped by the Holy Spirit, go forth in ministry to their homes near and far.
If you are traveling from a distance to attend, then we encourage you to consider extending your time with one of our travel options, which include sight-seeing, service opportunities, historical tours, and workshops.
For Friends who would prefer not to register online, we have this downloadable and printable registration option.
