Out in Faith, July 19

Out in faith promotes better integration in St. John's (Telegram, 11 July 2018) "In 2015, the Quaker Worship Group was invited to march in the Pride parade, part of a major step forward in faith-based groups integrating and embracing members of the LGBTQAI2S+ community. The Quaker Worship Group quickly realized it was the only faith-based group participating in the parade and sought to do something about it. From this realization was born Out in Faith, a multi faith service designed to facilitate more faith-based groups getting involved in Pride."

This year's multi-faith service is happening on 19 July 19 2018 at the Gathering Place in St. John's at 7:00 pm.

The Gower Affirm committee facilitated a film viewing as part of the Sunday service on 29 April 2018, followed by a series of small group discussions and activities. The event was aimed at clarifying and exploring further the journey we are on in becoming a designated affirming congregation in the fall of 2018.
