Anglican Consultative Council Meeting
Jubilee Campus, Nottingham University
June 18 to 29
The ACC Nottingham meeting is going to be a critical event for the future of the Anglican Communion and for the place of LGBT people in other countries of the Communion – those with harsh penal and religious codes – as well as the UK.
We need to make our presence very visible to the ACC delegates at Nottingham, and to achieve this, Changing Attitude is focussing on particular key days in the programme. If you can get to Nottingham for any of these dates, to hold banners, create a presence, or pray, these are the key days:
Sunday 19 June at 15.30 – Opening Eucharist,
St Peter’s, Nottingham, when the Archbishop of Canterbury will preside and the Revd Joel Edwards will preach.
People needed to hold Changing Attitude banners and rainbow flags and maintain a dignified presence outside the church from 3.00pm onwards.
Tuesday 21 June Consultation with ECUSA and Canada
2.30 to 4.00 ECUSA, 4.30 to 6.00 Canada, 8.00 to 9.00 Input from other Provinces
Inclusive Church Prayer vigil on the Jubilee Campus. People needed from 2.00pm to 6.00pm.
Wednesday 22 June
4.30 – 6.00 Discussion of setting up and structure of the Listening Process as requested by Lambeth 1.10.
People needed to hold Changing Attitude banners and rainbow flags from 4.00pm onwards.
Sunday 26 June 10.30 Eucharist at St Mary’s Church, Lace Market
People needed to hold Changing Attitude banners and rainbow flags and maintain a dignified presence outside the church from 10.00am onwards.
If you’re thinking of attending the ACC meeting, the sessions meeting will be open to the public and there will be up to 30 seats available on a first come first served basis. I’m told that despite this limitation, anyone who turns up will be able to get in.
The ACC meeting is being held on the Jubilee Campus of Nottingham University, reached from the A609 Wollaton Road close to the junction with the A6514 Middleton Boulevard/Western Boulevard. There is pay and display visitor parking at the Wollaton Road entrance. A hopper bus stops on the Jubilee Campus outside the Exchange building.
St Peter’s and St Mary’s churches are both in the centre of the city. St Peter’s web site has a link to a map.
