Every year Christians are encouraged to give something up for Lent. In 2020 Equal Voices Anglican is asking you to give up some money in support of a good cause!
2020 is a big year for the LGBTQIA+ members of the Anglican Church of Australia and their supporters. In May 2020 the governing body of the Anglican Church of Australia, General Synod, is meeting to discuss among other things “responding to LGBTIQA+ people and their needs”. Much of the public commentary around LGBTQIA+ people in the Anglican Church of Australia has not been positive. We know many of our members believe differently. That’s why Equal Voices Anglican Equal Voices Anglican would like to sponsor some of it’s members to attend this General Synod conference.
We are also seeking funding to enable us to host gatherings of LGBTQIA+ Anglicans to give our community a safe space to come together. In a time where our membership within our church is being hotly debated, we do not have a voice and often find ourselves isolated and without any sense of belonging. Events such as these allow us to come together as a community and make our voices heard!
The largest work of Equal Voices Anglican in 2020 is providing new resources on what it means to be an LGBTQIA+ Anglican in Australia today. This includes the compiling the stories of LGBTQIA+ Anglicans and giving the community the opportunity to make its voice heard.
More than anything else Equal Voices Anglican wants to give LGBTQIA+ Anglicans the opportunity to make their voices heard. Your donation, no matter how small, could make a huge difference to us and our community.
Help us find our voice. Help us to speak our truth loudly and clearly.
