LGBTQI Church Friendly Fair – Edinburgh
On Saturday 26th September 2015 7-8.30pm, Our Tribe @ Augustine United in partnership with the Chaplaincy at Edinburgh University, are hosting an LGBTQI Friendly Church Fair, and wondered if your church, group or organisation would like to participate in it?
The aim of the fair is to bring together LGBTQI affirming churches, faith communities and LGBTQI groups and organisations in Edinburgh, so that Edinburgh Uni students can find information and opportunities to connect with us, and so that we can connect with each other.
If you would like to participate, we would invite you to host a stall with leaflets etc about your organisation. We will have refreshments available. There will be a welcome and introduction near the start and then the rest of the evening will simply be an opportunity to meet, mix and share.
If you would like your organisation to participate in this please email Maxwell Reay. We hope that you can share in this event.
