Two:23 Coronavirus Update

UPDATE:  Following Government advice since 16th March 2020, it looks highly unlikely that the Two:23 meeting in May will be able to go ahead in London, whilst measures are in place to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  We are looking into ways to create a virtual Two:23 meeting and will update the website and Facebook page when the plans are clearer.  In the meantime, please do consider joining the conversation online at The Gathering Space (a supportive and friendly Facebook-based community for LGBTQ Christians) and signing-up to our newsletter to receive email updates from Two:23.  All of us on the Two:23 team hope and pray that you and your loved ones stay safe and well, and we really look forward to being able to see you again soon.

Next meeting - 16th May 2020 (pending the advice above)

May 15, 2020

Our next Two:23 meeting will be Saturday 16th May at Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church. when we're so pleased that Jide Macauley is going to be our speaker. Among other things, he is the founder of House of Rainbow, who do wonderful work with LGBTQ, faith and BAME communities in particular.

Join us from 2pm for a 2.23pm start. However you identify, and wherever you stand on issues of faith, gender and sexuality, we hope you'll feel really welcome. And as we're so often asked it, we'll say it again - that definitely includes straight people too!

There's no need to book or let us know you're coming, unless you'd like to - just come along on the day. Do drop us a line if you'd like to know more by clicking here.

Unlike our normal Saturday afternoon meetings, this will be a ticketed event. The ticket price of £15 includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

The Gathering Space

Two:23 only meets six times a year, but we're really pleased to have very close links to The Gathering Space, which is a supportive and friendly Facebook-based community for LGBTQ Christians run by a team including Rachel, David, Lisa-Jayne and Alex, who are also on the Two:23 Team.

It's a great place to keep in touch with people between meetings, or get to know some people before coming along to a meeting. It's also a secret group on Facebook, so nobody else on Facebook will be able to see that you are a member, if that would be a concern for you.

To find out more or to join, please email gatheringspacelgbtq@gmail.com.

Diverse Church Parents

Diverse Church Parents is a safe, welcoming Facebook-based community where parents and other family members of LGBT+ people can connect with others who are going through similar experiences.

It is run by regular Two:23ers Bruce and Janet Kent, and they arrange a real-life meet up at 1:00pm just before every Two:23 meeting in London.

Everyone is welcome regardless of where they’re at on the journey of coming to terms with having an LGBT+ relative, particularly in the context of churches that may not be affirming or inclusive.

To find out more email them at parents@diversechurch.co.uk
