LGBTQ+ and Christian in Oxford UK? FIRST SUNDAY is fellowship for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or questioning their sexuality (LGBTQ). We're part of St Columba's United Reformed Church in Oxford, UK, and meet there on the first Sunday of the month. You don't have to be LGBTQ or a Christian to come along.
Our Sunday evening meetings start with some time to catch up over coffee, pizza and cake. Then we have an activity for the evening which may be a visiting speaker, a discussion or something crafty, and we finish the evening with a simple communion.
Celebrating First Sunday
@:St Columba's United Reformed Church, Alfred Street, Oxford (near The Bear)
Date: Sunday 3rd December 2023 from 6.30pm
We’re bringing First Sunday to a close at the end of 2023 after 19 years of meetings. We’ve had many years of great conversations, interesting speakers, and proclaiming the inclusive love of God. But we sense a change in the air, and it’s time to pass on the baton.
For our final First Sunday join us for conversation over a meal from 6.30pm and a celebration service at 7.30pm.
We’re having curry instead of pizza, but there will still be coffee and cake and time to talk.
In our celebration service there will be hymns, songs, readings and prayers from our meetings over the years as well as a chance for all of us to say what we want to remember and celebrate about First Sunday, and we’ll finish with communion.
