“Written in the past, calling to the present”

Accepting Sexuality, an informal group of Methodists, is holding a series of Bible studies in October.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are used to hearing Biblical passages quoted in judgement or exclusion of their identity. This series looks at an interpretation in the context in which the passages were written which brings a positive, affirming and inclusive message to LGBT people, their families and friends, in relation to who God is and to our understanding of sexuality.

The series aims to enable an open, honest and Biblical understanding of these sometimes difficult passages.

The studies take place at 8pm in the Belfast South Methodist Church, Lisburn Road, Belfast.
