Gay 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 usually take their theme from the Bible readings for the week. We start with some time to catch up over coffee, pizza and cake. Then we think and talk about the ideas in the readings and finish the evening with a simple communion.
St Columba's church meeting endorses FirstSunday statement
For over fourteen years, FirstSunday has enabled LGBT Christians to tell their stories, wrestle with Scripture, ask difficult questions of God and better understand ourselves and our Creator.
In the context of the October 2018 "Clothe yourselves with love” letter from the four Bishops of the Oxford Diocese we have found ourselves moved to make a statement about what we believe.
The statement was drafted by those attending the February 2019 meeting of FirstSunday and unanimousy endorsed by the church meeting of St Columba's the same month.
The great unveiling; Shiny Happy People?
Date: Sunday 3rd March 2019 from 7.15pm
@: St Columba's United Reformed Church, Alfred Street, Oxford (near The Bear)
What do we keep hidden? What stops us letting people see us as we really are.
With coffee and pizza.
