June 26


03:00 pm - 04:30 pm


Edgbaston Quaker Meeting House

On the 4th Sunday of each month we’ll be hosting ‘Real Talk & Afternoon Tea’ – it is what it says on the tin: An opportunity to talk together about the things that matter as we share food together.

Our theme for June is the Body and Worship – how do our physical selves relate to our spiritual selves in the ways we relate to God and one another?

For our gathering on the 26th, we’ll be sharing some stories of the different ways that many of us have felt connected to God in worship, whether that is through music, art, creativity, study or church. When do we feel most connected to God? When do we feel the opposite? We’ll have an opportunity to talk around tables about this too.

If you are joining us from home (or just like to see what we are doing in advance) you can download our running order and info sheets for Sunday right here. 

Join us at 2:45 for a 3pm start at Edgbaston Quaker Meeting House (Five Ways). Scroll down for directions and details. Or join us via livestream on FB Live or YouTube.

There will be plenty of time for questions and discussions over food.

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.
