We learned how these groups use support from the Foundation to create safe, joyful spaces where folks can feel welcome and encouraged to live authentically in God’s love.

Our panel featured 3 amazing ministries, all past grant recipients:

Learning from these Radically Welcoming Minstries

When asked about the impact of Queer Kid Bible Camp, Ally Phillips asked us to consider the trauma of those looking for a new spiritual home:

“[W]hen we’re talking about folks who, maybe not in our buildings, but in other buildings, or in the larger Christian culture have been told that who they are is sinful or wrong… how are we going to negate that? How are we going to have room for the joy and for the sorrow of that?”.

Finally, former Rowntree scholar (and newly elected member of GCE) Katherine Brittain has asked us to share news of the upcoming Queer Family Retreat at Naramata Centre. Participants will connect with one another, with Creator, with the Land and with themselves. Attendees will celebrate time as community with values of belonging, justice and love– just as we are, beautifully and wonderfully made by God. For more information and to register, please visit:
