Christ in the Rainbow - an LGBTQ Advent retreat
During this weekend we will discover what the message of Advent and Christmas can mean in the context of our lives as gay, lesbian, bisexual men & women or transgendered people. Our colours of the Rainbow may lead us to this Christ event.
We remember that Christ was born in the midst of outcasts of his time. As queer men and women of faith we also experience that the religions of our time do not necessarily want us in their midst, yet we find our place, trust our journey and are blessed. Like the Magi in the Nativity story we have gifts to bring, and we are invited to consider what these gifts mean as LGBT people both for ourselves and the world.
Our time together will consist of talks and discussions, liturgy and meditation, prayer and visualisation with time for quiet reflection and rest. Wherever you are on your faith journey or whatever spiritual background you are from, you are welcome to participate.
Residential retreat: £180 includes accommodation, meals and refreshments.
