East Midlands

We are an inclusive, informal group of people supporting each other to value and integrate our spirituality and sexuality. Anyone supporting the group’s purposes may join us: it is not necessary to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered or Catholic.

Forthcoming events for 2017

We will be advising on upcoming events throughout the year.  Our programme for 2017 includes a House Mass in Derby, a day of reflection at Mount Saint Bernard Abbey near Coalville, a picnic, attending Leicester and Nottingham Prides, and an early summer walk in Derbyshire.

Our next event is a picnic in a Nottingham Park on the 22nd April.  Some of us might also go into town for a while for a spot of shopping and cafe life.

Watch this space for updates or contact us by email to find out more about the group.

LGCM and Changing Attitude have recently amalgamated under the new organisational name of ‘One Body One Faith’.  There have been a number of exciting launch events.  Go have a look at the new website here and their events page here.  One of the forthcoming events is: ‘Where Love and Sorrow Meet: a Service to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act‘ on  Saturday, 29 Jul 2017, 10:30AM at St Martin’s in the Fields, Trafalgar Square, London.  Details of that event can be found here.

We also …

… meet informally outside our schedule of events for meals, theatre, cinema – mostly in Leicester.

About us

We currently meet monthly. Most of our meetings are in Leicester, but our members come from across the East Midlands. Our meetings include house Masses and social events, day trips or watching movies of interest to our members. Occasionally we organise retreats and meetings with invited speakers. Some of us, living in Leicester, gather every Wednesday for Morning Prayer and breakfast at  7.15 am at members’ homes in the city. The Dominican community at Holy Cross Priory, Leicester, supports us when we have house Masses.

We are keen to make links with other LGBT Christian and multi-faith groups locally.

Information about the welcoming and inclusive Anglican parish of St Nicholas in the centre of Leicester can be found on their website: http://www.stnicholasleicester.com/
