Online Inclusive Gathering: Hidden Disabilities & Inclusion
July 18, 2021
04:00 pm - 06:30 pm
On Sunday, 18th July we’ll be LIVESTREAMING our gathering from Zoom. You are welcome to join us on the Zoom from 3:45 or watch as usual on Facebook Live.
We’ll be joined by guest Rev Zoe Heming who is a disability advisor and vicar. We saw a clip of Zoe in discussion with journalist Damon Rose during our gathering in May on Disability & Inclusion. The full interview is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDAvUfe6Tjk
We’ll also have live music from our special guest Nichole Grace.
This is part of our new series looking at the practice of inclusion and what it does/ can look like in a variety of areas of life and faith. The clue is in the name, but we see inclusion as a core part of our spirituality and our justice-seeking as a community.
We’ll re-open the Zoom after the main gathering and invite folks to join us for further discussion with Zoe. You can take a little break first and we’ll get started properly at 5:15.
You will need to be logged into a Zoom account with a public account name in order to access this Zoom.

Zoe Heming is a creative, wheelchair-using C of E Rev. with a passion for sharing faith in new ways. She believes church should be an inclusive, welcoming, community space for all people to discover and enjoy God-given gifts.

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.
