Mid-India Yearly Meeting is a yearly meeting of the Religious Society of Friends in Madhya Pradesh state in mid-India[1]. Quakerism came to mid-India as a result of missionaries from London Yearly Meeting who were members of the Friends Foreign Mission Association[2]. Missions were established in Mid-India in 1866 by the Friends Foreign Mission Association[3]. Mid-India Yearly Meeting was founded as an independent yearly meeting in 1907 in Hoshangabad[4].

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[4]. There are three schools in Itarsi which were founded and still run by Friends, but which now belong to the Indian government[4]. There is also the Sohugpur Friends' Girls' School which was founded by Friends and continues to be run by Mid-India Yearly Meeting Friends[4].

In 2002, Mid-India Yearly Meeting published a Hindi language version of Britain Yearly Meeting's Advices and Queries[5].

It is affiliated to Friends World Committee for Consultation[1][6].
