Please come along and join us on Saturday 19th September, when we’re thrilled to be welcoming Canon Mark Oakley of St Paul’s Cathedral to speak to us after a time of worship together. You’ll find Mark’s bio and some of the talks he’s given at the Greenbelt festival here.
As usual, we’ll be meeting at St Mary Aldermary from 1.30pm. All are welcome. For more details of maps and times and so on, click here.
21st November 2015 will be the first Two:23 Day Conference. Led by the wonderful Pádraig Ó Tuama, Leader of the Corrymeela Community, on the theme of ‘Exploring the gospel, fully alive in God’, it will take place at St Luke’s Church Holloway, in North London. We’ll start at 10am, and finish up by 6pm with an informal service of communion led by Dave Tomlinson. We’re asking for a contribution of £10 to cover some of the costs of the day including lunch – book your place by clicking here. Places are limited, so do book soon! If you are too far from London to make a 10am start, then we have a list of good value accommodation options on request. Any queries, email email@example.com

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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:
