‘Working on our Welcome’
17th June 11-3pm at Kensington Unitarians, Essex Church W8 4RT
A London District event to improve our hospitality to LGBT+ people
Unitarians are rightly proud of our historically progressive views on gender and sexuality issues, particularly our part in campaigning for equal marriage, but there is so much more work still to do. As a wider range of voices from across the LGBTQ+ rainbow (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer people) begin to make themselves heard, some of us may find ourselves confused by new terminology, and by seemingly conflicting messages about how best to respond to people’s needs.
In this half-day workshop, co-facilitated by Quaker activist Fred Langridge and Jane Blackall from our own Kensington congregation, we will explore some practical ways in which our communities can offer a better welcome to visitors who identify as LGBTQ+ and highlight areas where we could improve our awareness and sensitivity around issues of gender, sexuality and relationship diversity.
You’ll need to book in advance for this training (though the training is free of charge) so the organisers know how many people to prepare for, but you are also welcome to arrive at 3.00pm to attend a special worship service connected to the workshop’s themes. This will be followed by refreshments and time to socialise with everyone. Finish time around 4.30pm.
To book a place on the workshop or find out more, please contact Jane Blackall on jane@kensington-unitarians. org.uk or phone and leave a message on 020 7221 6514.
