Visible Spaces & Gatherings

"Visible Spaces and Gatherings are places where the lives, loves, identities and gifts of LGBT Christians are recognised, accepted, affirmed and celebrated. These spaces and gatherings are as diverse as our community. They include retreat houses, Bible study groups, people who gather together for worship, or to share food or socialise, or to campaign for change, and so we've asked each of them to describe what they do. What they all have in common is a commitment to OneBodyOneFaith's Statement of Conviction:

It is the conviction of the members of the Lesbian & Gay Christian Movement that human sexuality in all its richness is a gift of God gladly to be accepted, enjoyed and honoured as a way of both expressing and growing in love, in accordance with the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. Therefore it is their conviction that it is entirely compatible with the Christian faith not only to love another person of the same sex but also to express that love fully in a personal sexual relationship.”

A Visible Space or Gathering can be real or virtual; can take place nationally, regionally or locally.
