Every evening during Belfast Pride Week (Friday 28 June to Saturday 6 July) we will be holding our short reflective services, 15 mins with Christ, at 6 p.m. in St George’s Church in High Street. We will also be going, as a group, to the launch of Belfast Pride on Friday 28 June, meeting at 7 p.m. in Costa Coffee in Victoria Square.
Supporting the Parade
Rather than walking in the parade, we will be standing on High Street, behind a Faith and Pride banner, holding pro-gay signs and cheering the parade on. The participants in the parade will then see our message of accepting, inclusive Christianity where love is love, regardless of gender. The parade starts at 12 noon on Saturday 6 July. Our group will be assembling from 10.30 at St George’s Church on High Street.
If you are Christian and would like to be involved, please contact us using this form.

Accepting Sexuality, an informal group of Methodists, is holding a seminar on equal marriage, on Wednesday 22 May at 7.30 pm in the Skainos building, 239 Newtownards Road, Belfast. (Sandwich tea beforehand from 6.30 pm.)
Legislation is going through the Houses of Parliament, and while it doesn’t cover Northern Ireland, it has prompted a debate on how we understand marriage. The seminar aims to discuss and understand the issues involved, to help people to think these through and to reach their own conclusions.
James Grannell (editor of University College Dublin’s independent student newspaper) will provide an analysis of the debate; Revd Diane Clutterbuck is bringing a biblical and historical perspective; and Stephen Reain-Adair will speak from his own experience. There’ll be a chance for discussion, too.
If you are going to attend, please contact Revd David Cooper on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, due to the expected civil disobedience, we have had to cancel Faith, Pride, and Chat on Friday 25th January.
