CHRISTIAN GROUPS WELCOMING TRANS-PEOPLE
A number of members of Manchester Concord attend the Communion services detailed below so any Concord member who decides to go along is likely to find familiar faces to welcome them. Indeed the two organists who share the playing duties are both members of Concord and there often several other trans-people attending.
Services are normally held on the first Saturday of every month at 5:30 pm and follow a style very similar to that found in "middle of the road" Anglican parishes everywhere. The host parish of St Chrysostom is a welcoming inclusive place and these services are supported by the Bishop of Manchester's Advisory Group on Sexuality and by the diocese as a whole. The church is at 4A Anson Road, Victoria Park, Manchester, M14 5BG.
There is a new website giving the latest information and it is found at www.lgbtcommunion.org.uk and that shows any minor variations to the normal pattern of services and also has a contact button to reach Ian Gomersall, the parish priest.
There is also a Yahoo Group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LGBTCommunion for those connected with these services to exchange ideas amongst themselves.
