Inclusive Gathering Birmingham

Edgbaston Quaker Meeting House

Birmingham, B15 1JP

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.

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.

Our own resident scientist Naomi Bennett-Steele will be leading our discussion on Climate Crisis & Living Sustainably. Will anything we do now make a difference to the planet? Is there hope? Do you have to be middle class to afford to live sustainably? And what does spirituality have to do with it?

We’ll also be lighting the Hope candle together for the first Sunday of Advent.

There will be plenty of time for questions and discussions over food. And there will be an opportunity to make your own Advent Wreath to light candles throughout Advent at home. If you are joining online, you can print your own Advent Wreath to use with tea lights as part of this Red Letter Christians UK Advent Resource here. 

For those at home who would like to join a table discussion you can join Zoom via this link at 3pm. (Meeting ID: 951 1257 9105, Passcode: 916104)

IGB Kids Club will be available during the gathering for 2-10 year olds.

Food and drink will be provided with clear labelling and vegan and gluten free options.

Covid safety: We ask folks to wear masks (unless exempt) when not eating and to be mindful of others.

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.
