Event description
Empowering The Prophetic Voice: Trans and Non Binary Theology by Trans and Non Binary People

About this Event

This one-day conference has been designed to enable trans and non-binary theologians, thinkers and prophets to discuss Christian faith in a contemporary queer context. For too long, trans and non-binary voices have often been excluded from church narratives and often, current conversation is entrenched in the justification of why churches should welcome trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming people. This conference aims to move beyond these apologetic strands, listening to prophetic voices from the trans and non-binary community about a joyful, queer and resilient faith in Christ. The day will use a queer lens to explore theology and Christian practice and give a snapshot into how trans and non-binary people in the UK have much to say about the sacred.

It is apparent that there is an increasing tension between the LGBTQI+ Christian community and more conservative Christian voices seen recently with the proposed UK tour of Franklin Graham, and the Church of England's pastoral statement published on the 22/01/20. As a result, this conference aims to create a space of affirmation through queer and trans theology where we will explore understandings of prayer, storytelling, the Eucharist and what it means to be a prophetic voice in a context of hostility and division. Together, trans and non-binary theologians will deconstruct and reconstruct the forms of worship, liturgy and sacred space that are so familiar to Christian practice and we hope that this will further illuminate conversations and expressions of queer Christian identity today.

All welcome to attend.
