Dear Friends,

We invite you to spend a weekend with Groupe Languedoc at Centre Quaker de Congenies  to meet together an to share experiences and practice of quakerism 

We offer a flexible programme of activities that we can finalise together during our first session on Friday evening Activities? Some examples might be discussing topics such as:

  • What attracted me to the Quaker movement in the first place?
  • What it is like to be an “isolated” friend living in France?
  • What do the Quaker values of Sustainability, Integrity Peace, Community, Equality (SPICE) mean to me?

There will of course be Meeting for Worship.

There will also be time to enjoy the garden which is beautiful in the spring, to explore the area on foot or bicycle, we can loan you bicyclesand advice on love places to discover. On Saturday evening there will be an open access film that relates to our Quaker values.

The working language of the weekend sessions will be mainly in French but most members of Group Languedoc and the amis resident speak English too.

The cost of the weekend is based on shared accommodation and vegetarian meals. We will agree a rota between us to share housekeeping and meal preparation together.This arrangement enables us to offer the weekend at a discounted price of 85 euros per person in total for the weekend. We require a deposit of 20 euros to book a place. You can enquire about booking by email or post to:
