Blessed Are the Brave

6–8 January 2023

A weekend retreat for LGBTQ+ faith leaders & affirming allies from Christian traditions.

The retreat will run from 6.30pm on Friday 6th January until 2pm on Sunday 8th January, facilitated by Jade Irwin from Diverse Church.

This is our ninth Blessed Are the Brave event. Each year we welcome new and repeat participants on a weekend designed specifically for faith leaders from the Christian traditions who are inclusive of the lives, relationships and leadership of LGBTQ+ people. We will have the opportunity to share, listen, reflect, design, pause, lament, hope and be together.

The cost for the weekend is £150 per person for a single room, and £110 per person sharing. A limited number of scholarships are available for 18–30 year olds and for those who work without pay.
