Corrymeela Programmes


Faith and Inclusion

Through retreats, public meetings, the development of resources and dialogue with major Churches, Corrymeela addresses the impact of exclusion of LGBT people in Northern Ireland society. We work with individuals who are feeling isolated and targeted because of their sexuality, as well as provide training for individuals working for inclusion in the faith sector. We run ‘Blessed are the Brave’, an annual retreat for members of the LGBT community and clergy who are LGBT affirming. This retreat takes place during the latter part of January. This project has been funded through many donors, and we are currently exploring new models of funding for this necessary project focus.
