Thanks to all who joined us on Saturday 16th April. If you missed it, fear not, for the next Two:23 meeting is on 11th June 2016 at Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, when we will be joined by Rev David Gillett, a former bishop in the Church of England, and staunch supporter of LGBTI people. We are really looking forward to hearing from him. Everyone is welcome, whoever you are, we’d love to see you. If you’re thinking about coming, and have any questions, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just turn up on the day.

From 2016 we have a bigger, more central new venue. Our Saturday afternoon meetings will now take place at Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church. More space, fewer pillars and still plenty of space to have coffee together, we’re thrilled that the lovely people at Bloomsbury have been so happy to host us. You can find it at 235 Shaftesbury Avenue, nearest tubes Tottenham Court Road, Covent Garden or Holborn. Or have a look at our maps and directions here;

Back in April, we heard from the wonderful Jo Dolby, who is a lecturer, film maker and youth worker based in Bristol. She spoke brilliantly about communion and the way Jesus radically includes everyone at the table. Listen to it here:
Calling all family members of LGBT people! Two:23 isn’t just for LGBT people – we’ve started a group with our sister organisation Diverse Church for parents of LGBT people who would like to connect with others in a similar situation. The next face to face meet-up will be at 12pm on 13th June before the next Two:23 meeting, and there’s a secret Facebook group too. For more information about Diverse Church Parents check out some more details here or email email@example.com
Diverse Church is a sister organisation to Two:23. It is a supportive community of young LGBT+ Christians in UK evangelical churches. If you’re aged 18-30 and would like to get involved, you can find out about here, follow them on Twitter here, and watch this amazing film they made here. Rev Sally Hitchiner, the founder of Diverse Church, spoke at Two:23 and you can hear that here:
