Peter Parr

Peter Parr combines working four days a week as a civil servant with writing and facilitating workshops. Part of a group called The Kindlers, he visits Quaker meetings around the country to lead days of reflection and exploration. He is passionate about enabling people to reflect on their spiritual journeys and understandings and to get to know one another more deeply in the things which are eternal. He has facilitated an `Action for Happiness` course, giving participants the opportunity to explore what really matters for a happy and fulfilling life. For several years, Peter hosted and facilitated an ecumenical house group, linked to the Progressive Christianity Network UK, for people to explore questions of faith. Peter has been a Quaker since 2005. His novel `Escape to Redemption`, which explores themes of guilt and redemption, was published in 2016.
