We are very pleased to announce details for our 10th Anniversary Celebration this year!
It will be on Saturday 18th October 2014 at St John’s Church Waterloo, London, and our speakers are Steve Chalke and Vicky Beeching.
When we launched Accepting Evangelicals 10 years ago, the phrase ‘pro-gay evangelical’ was thought to be a contradiction in terms. Yet today, Evangelical Christians are increasingly open to an accepting or affirming theology of sexuality.
We have come a long way – but there is still a long way to go. So as we celebrate 10 years, we will be looking forward with excitement and hope for the future.
We are delighted to have Steve Chalke and Vicky Beeching as our speakers.
Steve Chalke is a Baptist minister, founder of Oasis Global & Stop The Traffik, and a United Nations Special Advisor on Community Action Against Human Trafficking. He is Church Leader at Oasis Waterloo and was awarded the MBE in 2004 for services to social inclusion.
Vicky Beeching is a theologian, writer and religious commentator. She studied Theology at Oxford University and is currently doing research for a PhD at Durham University exploring Christian theology, sexuality and gender. She regularly appears on national TV and radio. She has recently started blogging on marriage and LGBT theology to open up conversations among her readers.
Steve and Vicky are also Patrons of Accepting Evangelicals.
The Celebration starts at 2pm but the church will be open from 12:30 for fellowship – just bring a picnic lunch – and our members are also invited to a brief Annual Meeting at 11:30am to do the charity business for the year.
