Inclusive Gathering Birmingham @ The Loft – special guest Rev Jide Macaulay
June 4, 2023
03:00 pm - 01:00 am
Inclusive Gathering Birmingham meets upstairs at the Loft on Sunday afternoons at 3pm.
On Sunday, 4th June we are very excited to welcome our friend and special guest Rev Jide Macaulay. Jide is a priest, activist and founder of House of Rainbow (read more about him below).
This will be an exciting post-Pride gathering so join us for for music with the full band, open table communion and of course cake! We’re livestreaming this one to YouTube, too.
We will also be running our IGB Kid Club during the gathering for kids under 10. Details here: https://inclusivegathering.org.uk/igb-kids-club/
We’re a diverse, justice-seeking, LGBTQIA+ affirming church for ALL based in Brum’s Gay Village (City Centre). We’re a community learning to practice God’s radical love & inclusion the best we can.
Our largest worship gathering happens on the 1st Sunday of each month and will also be livestreamed to YouTube. Our other Sunday gatherings tend to be lower-key, centred around spiritual connection & conversation.
We’ll have friendly people and signs to point you in the right direction – you can go straight upstairs via the entrance under the Pride House sign, or go through the main Loft entrance to take the lift upstairs.
