Affirm United - 2016 Conference

June 28, 2016


I wanted to let you know about an upcoming conference you may be interested in!


The organization that helps churches become Affirming, is called Affirm United, and they have a conference in a different location in Canada every year. It's a great opportunity to connect with other LGBTQ folks and allies from across the country, continue your own learning, and be able to share with others. 


This year's conference is happening in Ottawa July 22-24.


here is the info directly from Affirm United - check it out!
"Join us July 22-24 2016: Affirm United/ S’affirmer Ensemble annual conference in Ottawa at Glebe-St. James United Church.  We welcome your registrations for our Ottawa conference as soon as possible! All are welcome, no matter your identity or understanding of faith and spirit. We offer a special welcome to new Affirming ministries. Please join us so that we can welcome you to the family in person and hear your stories.
Our main conference page has accommodation information, a draft agenda, an online registration and payment form, and a downloadable PDF for print registration.
Exciting plans continue to take shape. We look forward to welcoming Moderator Jordan Cantwell to the entire meeting, and to working with the United Church to welcome the presence of global partners. We’ll welcome activists, thinkers, and liturgists from a wide range of gender and sexual identities and enjoy music, theatre, and worship together. We’ll explore language that harms and heals, and continue to expand our conversations about trans* and genderqueer identities and gifts.
Children’s programming will be available, and AU/SE and the planning group are working in partnership to ensure that francophones will feel welcome and be able to participate. The church is fully accessible.
This is going to be a diverse and wonderful gathering; please plan to join us in lovely Ottawa! All welcome, regardless of identity. Bring an open spirit, good energy, and ideas for widening a welcome for all."
