OneBodyOneFaith believes and lives out that LGBT+ people of faith ought to not just survive but thrive. We have first-hand experience of the need that exists to nourish the wellbeing of LGBT+ Christians, with demonstrable evidence of the impact that a negative or harmful church or faith-based experience can have on an individual.
Rhythm is our response to this need. A unique spiritual companionship offering that provides space for weekly prayer online, opportunities to gather offline in fellowship, the development of LGBT+ focussed retreats with content that is written by and for LGBT+ Christians, and occasions of celebration throughout the year. In September 2023 we held our first offline retreat which created the space and opportunity for participants to come away from the demands of everyday life to explore what it means to be fearfully and wonderfully created as LGBT+ people. Participants were encouraged to find the joy in their faith, to explore how God delights us. Positive feedback from participants showed how needed and precious this time was.
If you are inspired by our vision of a thriving and flourishing spirituality that is rooted in LGBT+ identities, then please consider giving to this cause here. With your support we will be able to lead retreats throughout the year, providing a space for reflection, prayer, spiritual refreshment, and encouragement.
