Central Yearly Meeting of Friends started in 1926 comprised of 6 churches.

CYM has endeavored throughout its history to maintain not only some of the time honored traditions that set us apart as Quakers but also to maintain the central message of the early Friends, that the atoning work of Jesus Christ is entirely adequate to speak to the sin problem of the human heart and to enable each person to live a holy life through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

We are unique among English-speaking Friends for our continued emphasis on a conservative holiness lifestyle and our identification with the conservative holiness movement.
