On Sunday, 4 September, we’re back at the Meeting House at Five Ways after our summer schedule! We’d love you to join us for stories, music, creativity and connection with God and one another.

Arrive from 2:45 for a hot drink and a snack and we’ll get started at 3pm. For those who’d like to stick around, we’re ordering pizza to share after the gathering. Pizza is on us! It will be lovely to sit around the table together.

Our theme for September is joy and celebration (as we head toward a very joyful Birmingham Pride). We’ll be celebrating the joy that comes from worshipping a God who knows us fully and completely and who loves us inside and out, just as we are.

Numbers 1 and 8 and the Harborne and Hagley Road bus routes stop near by at the Big Morrisons at Five Ways which is nearby.

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.
