Inclusive Community Carols with Eeek
December 13, 2020

Inclusive Gathering Birmingham
Birmingham, United Kingdom, B4 7SX
Every year, it’s our tradition to host a special Inclusive Community Carols event with local band Eeek. This year, we plan to do the same … even though we need to approach it a bit differently!
We are planning to LIVE STREAM this afternoon of contemporary Christmas songs, carols, candles and stories.
We always like to integrate art and creativity in our celebrations, so there are some plans in the works for some interactive activities!
AND we also continue our tradition of featuring a Christmas charity. This year, our event will be in aid of Red Letter Christians UK’s NRPF Debt Jubilee. Read more about it www.redletterchristians.org.uk/nrpfdebtjubilee
So don your sparkliest Christmas jumper, make a flask of hot cocoa and a mince pie, and let’s celebrate Christmas together by any means necessary!
About Eeek …
Hailing from the Midlands (and New Jersey), the ladies of Eeek met each other one by one, playing together in a variety of different bands over the course of a decade before finally forming Eeek in 2008. Their shared musical history and strong friendships are part of their unique sound. Eeek has performed at Pride events in Brighton, Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Nottingham and Manchester, been a popular feature at L-fest. Their album Love, Loss & Bowling is available on iTunes. This is IGB’s 4th year of running Inclusive Community Carols with Eeek.

Inclusive Gathering Birmingham is a diverse church 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.
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.

About RLC UK’s NRPF Debt Jubilee Campaign…
Red Letter Christians UK is a network for people who believe Jesus’ life and words move us to respond to poverty, injustice and exclusion with compassion and action.
Activists and community leaders across the Red Letter Christians UK network have pointed to NRPF (No Recourse to Public Funds for those who are subject to immigration control) as a major contributor to the suffering and deprivation they see on a daily basis, from food poverty to homelessness to trafficking to debilitating debt.
If you feel moved to, you can contribute toward the #NRPFDebtJubilee fundraiser here or order their 2020 Christmas Cards to help this cause. All proceeds go toward releasing our most vulnerable from medical and accommodation debt.
