Please come: Act of Witness, General Synod 9th Feb

There will be an Act of Witness in Deans Yard Westminster on Thursday 9th February – the final day of General Synod’s meetings in London.

It will be a silent Act of Witness for the thousands of faithful LGB&T Clergy who minister in the Church of England despite the discrimination and suspicion which they often suffer.

We will congregate in Dean’s Yard by the entrance to Church House at 8:30am on Thursday 9th February in time to welcome General Synod members as they arrive for the day’s business. There will also be an opportunity for prayer and to give leaflets out to people arriving at Church House. The Act of Witness will end by 10:15am.

With the House of Bishops review group on Sexuality beginning its work shortly, this is an important opportunity to draw attention to the extent to which the Church of England relies on LGB&T clergy. We hope that you will be able to join us on the day.

The entrance to Dean’s Yard is through the arch next to Westminster Abbey by the Abbey Bookshop. Follow this link for more information: Deans Yard London, SW1P 3NY.

    Colin,

    Sorry to say London is too far & too expensive a jaunt from home…alas…

    Just an idea: Could you not give out some sort of say badge… or an obvious symbol for people to wear .. with a leaflet / explanation to wear it if in support? It will in itself be a visible testament within the Synod… I bet nearly all the laity will wear such! If if were something pink / it may go with purple!! (I doubt.. ) but a sure message!

    An idea… wish you all well…
