Edgbaston Quaker Meeting House
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.
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.
Pat and Faith will be leading a discussion about forgiveness. Jesus’ teaching on forgiveness and reconciliation is a beautiful part of our faith, but many of us have also experienced the twisting of these concepts in a way that has caused pain and damage.
Is forgiveness always possible? What is the Christian ethic of forgiveness? How does it actually work? How has forgiveness been muddled, misunderstood or misused? We’ll discuss these questions & more over food & drinks
There will be plenty of time for questions and discussions over food.
For those at home who would like to join a table discussion you can join Zoom via this link at 3pm: https://zoom.us/j/97217597568?pwd=UW9DanJUOFoyM25kRDVMMTI5ZjZhZz09 (Meeting ID: 972 1759 7568, Passcode: 149789)
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.

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.
