We had a stall. We had bunting. We had jelly babies.
We advertised the work of Changing Attitude, LGCM, Inclusive Church, Accepting Evangelicals, the Quakers, Quest, as well as individual inclusive churches in the Nottingham area. Not only Christian groups but LGBT-affirming groups of other faiths – Imaan (Muslim), Sarbat (Sikh) and Nehirim (Jewish). There were lots of photocopies for people to take away with them and copies of the comprehensive list for them to google later.
We were encouraged by the number of people who stopped by, intrigued by our photo cubes, tempted by our jelly babies and pleasantly surprised that there were so many affirming groups of faith in existence. This was another opportunity too for us to hear individual people’s stories of faith and experiences of church, both negative and positive. A number of people left their email addresses for further contact later.
