Would you like to join us at Birmingham Pride this year?

The Birmingham Pride Parade is happening on Saturday 27th May … back to its original timing on the Bank Holiday Weekend!

On the day there are 2 meeting points for you to arrive at, the main one will be outside Java Roastery Colmore Row at 11:30.

Our second meeting point will be at the Church at Carrs Lane at 10:30.

We will share a short time of prayer outside the Church at Carrs Lane before those who are marching leave at 11:15 to head to Colmore Row (Java Roastery).

A group will also be staying at Carrs Lane to distribute stickers and sweets as part of the Christians at Pride roadside team.

Once the marchers have assembled as one group at Java Roastery Colmore Row, we will head to the main Pride meeting location on Centenary Square, to leave as part of the procession at approximately 12:30.

It would be great if you could sign up here if you are planning to join us so that we can estimate numbers.

Though very helpful sign up is not mandatory and you can turn up at either meeting point on the day.

Please be aware that if we have more people than our allocated number to march our LGBTQIA+ friends (and then pre-sign ups of allies) will be given priority to march. Unlimited numbers can be part of the roadside team at Carrs Lane so there will still be a way for you to participate regardless.

It’s worth bringing rain jackets and sun cream to be prepared for any weather.

Please speak to Danielle or Adam Rock for more information. Or email



Whatever church or faith community you are part of, you are welcome to join us in celebration and affirmation of LGBTQ+ folks and the gift they/we are to communities of faith, spirituality and justice.

We would love you to wear your purple Christians at Pride T-shirt if you have one (you can order one here – there will be just a few available to borrow on the day).

If you are clergy you are welcome to wear your clerical clothing. You can add some rainbow bling to your Pride outfit of course if you’d like (or wear something else if you’ve got a fabulous Pride outfit you are planning).

If you have a sign/ placard with the name of your church or group on it, each church or group is welcome to carry one of those up to A2 size (whether printed or home made).

We’re looking forward to seeing you Pride Weekend as we celebrate the joy and blessing that LGBTQ+ people are to our city and how deeply loved LGBTQ+ folks are by God and by us.
Happy Pride!
