We asked those attending our monthly LGBT Communion (1st Saturday of month, 5pm) for their comments about the worship and gathering.
It’s clearly very welcoming, and much appreciated by those who come –
Why not come along some time?
Here are what people said:
“I have just moved to Manchester and I have been marvellously welcomed. The LGBT Communion was so well run and inclusive”
This service is important to me as “a regular time of worship and meeting point”
This is indeed “Inclusive Church and Sacred Space”
“Lovely, reflective, unhurried Eucharist and music. Excellent”
“Transgendered people in particular can find it very difficult to go to unfamiliar places. Some have been made to feel uncomfortable within their local church communities. The LGBT Communion service has welcomed back into the Church a number of people that I have known personally. They may not become regular attendees of the service, but the service provides a pathway that can bring them back into the wider church and encourage them to find other welcoming places that may become their regular place of worship. I guess ‘welcoming back those who might have lost touch, holding up the light of God'”
“Enjoy the community, fellowship which this service/group offers – I come as a friend/supporter”
I think you’re doing something very good here. Long may it flourish.
