An Evening with Charlie Bell at the House of Commons
Revd Dr Charlie Bell is is hosting an event at 7pm on Tuesday 13th September in the Committee Rooms of the House of Commons. Charlie is a member of Modern Church, has served on MC’s Council, and would like to extend an invitation to Modern Church members and affiliates.
The event is titled “Queer Holiness: LGBTQI people, the church, and charting the future”, and Charlie will be discussing his new book “Queer Holiness” with Revd Dr Mark Oakley, Dean of St John’s College Cambridge. There will also be discussion of the current state of the Church of England’s relationship with LGBTQI people. The evening provides an opportunity to look to different versions of a possible future and is a clarion call to action for all those in the church who wish to affirm the dignity and holiness of LGBTQI people.

Following the recent Convenors zoom meeting, there was a request from a number of you for us to set up a Convenors WhatsApp group. This has now been set up for us and we would like to express our thanks to Nicola Denyer for organising this.
The WhatsApp group is for MOSAIC Convenors and Steering Group Members only and will provide a way that we can be better connected with each other and support one another more easily.
The link to join the WhatsApp group has been sent out to all those who are eligible to join but if you have not received this link by email, please get in touch with us.
