Mid-India Yearly Meeting is a yearly meeting of the Religious Society of Friends in Madhya Pradesh state in mid-India. Quakerism came to mid-India as a result of missionaries from London Yearly Meeting who were members of the Friends Foreign Mission Association. Missions were established in Mid-India in 1866 by the Friends Foreign Mission Association. Mid-India Yearly Meeting was founded as an independent yearly meeting in 1907 in Hoshangabad.
There are six monthly meetings in Mid-India Yearly Meeting: Hoshangabad Friends Meeting, Itarsi Friends Meeting, Kheda Friends Meeting (also in Itarsi), Sohagpur Friends Meeting, Seoni Malwa Friends Meeting and Makoriya Friends Meeting. There are three schools in Itarsi which were founded and still run by Friends, but which now belong to the Indian government. There is also the Sohugpur Friends' Girls' School which was founded by Friends and continues to be run by Mid-India Yearly Meeting Friends.
