The Rainbow Communion is coming to Ottawa, April 4-6, 2019

The Rainbow Communion is a special LGBTQI listening group formed by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada with members drawn from across the church, reflecting the diversity of the denomination and including two members who identify as LGBTQI. The Rainbow Communion mandate is to offer a safe and respectful environment in which confidentiality is assured, in order to encourage people to tell stories of harm done to them in the church because of homophobia, heterosexism and transphobia, and also to share stories of God’s grace experienced by them and through them in Christian ministry, even in the midst of the challenges they have faced. All persons (people who identify as LGBTQI, as well as relatives, friends, co-workers, members of same congregation, ecumenical colleagues, allies and others) are welcome to share their stories of harm and grace with the Rainbow Communion. Stories can be submitted orally or in writing. When the listening process is completed, an appropriate response to the issue of homophobia within the PCC including recommendations for concrete actions to address it will go to the General Assembly for implementation within the church. Stories shared by individuals will only be included if permission is given by the individual.

If you wish to learn more or book a time to share your story, the rainbow communion can be reached confidentially at either rainbowcommunion@gmail.com or 1-800-619-7301 extension 300 or at www.presbyterian.ca/listening.
