LGBT+ People of Faith
We recognise there are many intersections within the LGBT+ community, one of them being faith.
In addition to our own fully inclusive Chaplaincy, St Peter's House, we have gathered together a number of groups of support that people may find useful.
You can read a message from Chaplain Rev Ben Edson here.
We also have a closed Yammer Group for LGBT+ people of faith.
