What happens at Two:23?

Two:23 host five meetings a year.  They all take place on a Saturday afternoon, when typically around 150 of us meet to worship together, be inspired by a wonderful speaker, and to catch up with others. There is no need to book for those meetings - just come along and say hello.

Meetings start at 2.23pm, but you're welcome to arrive for coffee any time from 2pm.  The meeting usually finishes around 4pm, followed by some more time to chat over another cup of tea or coffee.  From 5pm many of us take the opportunity to continue conversations elsewhere over some food, and all are welcome there too.  

Who comes to Two:23?

Everyone is welcome, whether or not you’re LGBT yourself - we also love to welcome friends and family members, and anyone else who fancies joining us.  If you're coming for the first time, we hope you'll feel especially welcome.  People tend to be very friendly and approachable at Two:23, but if you’d like to make contact with someone first, do please contact us at hello@two23.net – we’d love to hear from you!  

When's the next Two:23 meeting?

​Our next Saturday afternoon meeting in central London is Saturday 25th January 2020. We'll be worshipping together and taking time to welcome and get to know one another over a cup of coffee before and after the meeting. All are welcome and no need to book in advance.  Our forthcoming Saturday afternoon meeting dates are 25th January 2020, 21st March 2020 and 16th May 2020.

However you identify, and wherever you stand on issues of faith, gender and sexuality, we hope you'll feel really welcome at any of our events. Do drop us a line if you'd like to know more by clicking here.

Is Two:23 accessible?

Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church is fully wheelchair accessible, with the sanctuary, foyer and accessible toilets all on one level, and spaces among the pews for wheelchairs. There is access to the rest of the building using the lift, although Two:23 usually only takes place on the ground floor.  Tottenham Court Road tube now also provides step-free access to the Northern and Central lines.


The words of songs are projected onto large screens, and we also provide large print song lyrics and a hearing loop.
