On Sunday, 5th December we’ll be gathering for our Annual Inclusive Community Carols event with the band Eeek
Pop on your Christmas jumper and join us either in person or online for music, stories and tasty treats. We’ll also have a quiet(er) room with creative activities to do.
Arrive at 2:45 for a 3pm start at Edgbaston Quaker Meeting House (Five Ways). Depending on interest, we may need to ask in person attendees to book in. Scroll down for directions and details.
We’ll have clear Covid safety precautions in place and will also be livestreaming our worship gathering to Facebook Live and YouTube for those not joining us in person.
There will be no IGB Kids Club for this gathering, but this will be a fun event for young ones with some crafty things to do just for them.

About Inclusive Gathering Birmingham …
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 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.
