London Act of Witness – 9th February

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 many hundreds 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. 

Everyone is welcome and we warmly invite you 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

The event is being organised by the LGB&T Anglican Coalition – www.lgbtac.org.uk

  1. Benny, I wish I could be there, but I am too immobile at the moment to manage it. I have put a notice about it on my facebook page urging people to come.
    Also, I’m bound to say I would have found it almost impossible to be a silent witness – there are too many people at GS I would like to punch on the nose! (only joking!)

    • Thanks Laura! I think that bobbing people on the nose may not quite be in the spirit of what we have agreed with the Abbey!
      I hope you improve soon.
      God Bless Benny
