Thanks to all of you who joined us on 18th April, when 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:
Please put the next Two:23 meeting in your diary – Saturday 13th June at St Mary Aldermary in London, near St Paul’s Cathedral.
We are absolutely delighted to be welcoming Bishop Alan Wilson, an outspoken supporter of LGBT people within the church, and hope you’ll be able to join us – all are welcome. Arrive from 1.30pm for coffee and we’ll look forward to welcoming you then. Any queries, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Back in February, 160 of us joined together in worship and fellowship, and Rev Dave Tomlinson spoke fantastically. Listen to his talk here:
‘Restoring the Broken Image’ is a day retreat for LGBT Christians run by Two:23 Team member and professional art therapist Karen. Offering an opportunity to explore our healing and identity in Christ using prayer, scripture and art, the day will include refreshments, lunch and materials. No gift for art is necessary! It will take place on 11th July in Milton Keynes, 10am to 4pm. UPDATE – this is now fully booked, but do contact email@example.com if you’d like to be told about the next one.
Thank you to everyone who let us know their thoughts on Two:23 – we’ve read, digested and prayed about all of them, and are looking forward to sharing some new ideas for Two:23 at the next couple of meetings. If you have any new thoughts or ideas, don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Always good to hear from you!
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:
