On Sunday, 21st May Inclusive Gathering Birmingham is hosting a special Pre-Pride Service of Blessing that is open to EVERYONE.
Think: music, snacks, prayer, good vibes, rainbows & glitter.
We will be praying for blessing, joy and safety for all of Birmingham Pride Weekend -Those of all faith backgrounds and none are welcome to join us. You are also very welcome to email us things you’d like us to pray for to email@example.com.
Inclusive Gathering Birmingham is 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 radically inclusive love & inclusion the best we can.
We meet Upstairs at the Loft on Sunday afternoons at 3pm.
NOTE: We won’t be having our regular gathering on Pride Weekend as The Loft is within the ticketed area. But look out for opportunities to celebrate or help out at Pride over the weekend.
The Loft is in the heart of the Gay Village. It is fully accessible and a short distance from New Street Station and city centre Bus Routes.
For those who may be driving in, you may be able to find free parking on the street (as it is Sunday) but you can also pay for parking at the Arcadian very nearby. If you haven’t already, please do check that your vehicle complies with the clean air zone (or you may be charged).
If there is anything we can do to make it easier for your to join in, please let us know!
Inclusive Gathering Birmingham is a community gathered together by a common dream: to become a truly inclusive faith community, where doubt and difference are a welcome part of our journey together toward Jesus. We believe that the way of Jesus leads us to the wild, radical idea that true spiritual community can be formed based on who is INCLUDED, not by who is EXCLUDED. We are a learning community, constantly growing and changing to live out this vision in new and expanding ways.
When we say “inclusion”, we mean much more than mere tolerance or welcome. We believe God wants us all to know that we actually belong. That means people of every race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, age and background, HIV status, ability and disability, theological and political conviction are loved, invited, and fully included.
We are a part of the Inclusive Church Network and the Birmingham Methodist District. Read more about what makes us tick at www.inclusivegathering.org.uk or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions or chat.
