Changing Attitude England is a group of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) and heterosexual Anglicans, lay and ordained, who are prepared to be open and visible within the Church, meeting to develop a strategy for change in the Church.
Changing Attitude has achieved a national and international presence and gained a reputation for the honesty and integrity of our reporting and our involvement with the Primates, bishops and councils of the Church.
Changing Attitude Diocesan Groups meet in nine dioceses. They offer a programme of events including speakers, quiet days, socials and provide encouragement and support. We have a network of contacts in many of the remaining dioceses, and members in almost every diocese.
Church of England General Synod
The Director and supporters of Changing Attitude attend General Synod meetings in London and York, displaying information, networking with General Synod members and reporting on the CA Blog.
Changing Attitude diocesan groups have organized a presence at Gay Pride events and staffed stalls in the following cities in 2009 and 2010: Birmingham, Brighton, Leeds, London, Manchester, Norwich. We plan to be present at more Prides in 2011 making LGBT Christians visible to the gay community and to the crowds who watch.
