"We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice,
we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself." Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison (1943-1945)

Pastors reflect on reaching out to LGBT+ communities


Not everyone who experiences homosexual or gender confusions wishes to embrace an LGBT+ identity and lifestyle. Diversity of opinion is fundamental to any educative venture in democratic education, and view-point discrimination becomes indoctrinatory unless divergent viewpoints are heard and debated.

Two Surrey pastorsrecently invited any attending "Pride in Surrey" interested to come to hear another way forward - valuing those leaving unwanted experiences and feelings. Woking Pastor Eddy Valletta from Word of Life Church and Pastor Simon Wyatt from Bethel Christian Assembly in Shalford, Guildford successfully hosted “Changed by Love – Grace without Borders”, an opportunity to meet and share with those who have replaced their LGBT identity with an identity in Christ and who are finding freedom from unwanted behaviours and feelings. Invitation leaflets to the event were distributed at Woking Park during the day on Saturday morning, 10th August and the LIVE event can be see here.
