Repeating Workshop:
An Inclusive Introduction to Living in Love and Faith

A workshop to explore the content of the LLF resources from an inclusive perspective

NB As there is now less demand for the workshops we have decided not to offer any more for the time being. If you would like to come to a workshop if we decide to restart them, please let us know by emailing workshop+llf​@​cofe-equal-marriage.org.uk with the subject line ‘LLF Workshop interest’.

In all, between April and October this year we held the workshop six times and a total of 130 people took part – a pleasing outcome. The details below will remain for now as a record of the last three workshops, although the booking links have been disabled.

We are now making the workshop resources, including the videos and scripts, available to all our Supporters. If you have signed up as a Supporter you will receive a private link to the resources page.

About these Events

The Campaign for Equal Marriage in the Church of England invites you to join us for a Zoom workshop to explore the content and principles of the LLF resources from an inclusive perspective. Daytime workshops are three hours in length; evening workshops are four hours long, divided into two two-hour sessions a week apart.

The workshop will provide critiques and analyses of the LLF materials and the opportunity (in breakout rooms) to discuss them in a space that is safe for LGBTQIA+ Christians and their supportive allies.

We will also offer advice and suggestions as to how you might safeguard your own wellbeing should you choose to be involved in an LLF course in your local area.

Following the success of the first workshop in April 2021, we are continuing to offer these workshops while there is demand. Click the light orange bars below for details of forthcoming and recent workshops. They are free of charge, but you have to book via Eventbrite. The Zoom links will be sent to those who book.

Evening workshops are divided into two sessions of two hours each, a week apart. The extra time – four hours rather than three – allows for longer discussions in breakout groups. Please check that you are able to come to both sessions before booking.

You only need to make one booking, for the first session on 12 October; that entitles you to come to both sessions. Eventbrite also offers tickets for 19 October, but you do not need to book for the 19th (though it doesn’t matter if you do).
