The Wider Fellowship of Conservative Friends is an outreach effort of Ohio Yearly Meeting, creating a safe space for Friends of like mind, or who are curious about the witness of Conservative Friends.
The Wider Fellowship hosts a General Gathering once every two years, typically during the month of June, in Barnesville, Ohio. Though the Gathering is sponsored by Friends from Ohio Yearly Meeting, we hope that everyone, regardless of their Yearly Meeting affiliation (or lack thereof) will feel welcome to attend. We especially invite our brothers and sisters from Iowa and North Carolina Yearly Meetings (Conservative), with whom we share a long and important history.

Welcome all who seek to worship in the Name of Jesus in the traditional manner of Friends
Sixth Month 11 – 13, 2021
On the last day of the feast Jesus stood up and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink, If anyone believes in me, rivers of living water will flow from that person’s heart, as the Scripture says.” John 7:37, 38 Our desire is that we wait together to drink in this Christ. Come with a thirst for Him and Him only. It has been our experience that when we come to Him empty of self-centered desires we will receive food of a heavenly type that the world knows nothing about.
