Student Christian Movement and LGBT History Month
Student Christian Movement Glasgow are holding a series of workshops, talks and panel discussions to celebrate LGBT History Month. As well as looking to our past, we’ll be asking what’s next for Queer people in the Church. Speakers include the renowned poet and priest Reverend Rachel Mann, biblical scholar Dr Sarah Nicholson, and equal marriage champion and Provost of St Mary’s Cathedral, the Very Reverend Kelvin Holdsworth.
