Membership of children

Options available to those admitted when they were children

Membership acquired as a child constitutes formal membership and the member is under no obligation to confirm it on reaching a certain age. It is entirely valid, however, for a member to wish to indicate a personal acceptance of membership acquired when very young, or to wish to resign and seek re-admission as a ‘convinced’ Friend. Such requests may be made after much serious thought and area meetings should respond carefully, being guided by the spiritual needs of their members rather than by the desire to establish or follow a uniform practice.
