Welcome to Christians at Bristol Pride
We seek to share the love of God with all people. Christians at Bristol Pride is affirming of all LGBTQIA+ people and communities.
If you want to understand our attitude in three words, it would be: ‘God Affirms You’.
We had a wonderful Pride Day, starting with a rainbow service of celebration at the New Room, Broadmead. There was a good attendance and we heard personal stories from people about why they support Christians at Pride. It was moving to hear from them. This year we had no interruptions!
From there we joined the March under our Christians at Pride banner, and several had placards with positive Christian messages. At the same time another group formed up on the street with more inclusive messages, to greet the marchers as they passed by. This was the first time we had arranged this standing group, and the responses they received from people on the march were amazing. People were so glad that Christians had turned out with a positive inclusive message that God’s love is for all.
In contrast to this, there were two preachers who were bringing a more negative word against LGBT people, but we managed to smile and tell them that God loves them too!
Up on the Downs we set up our stall in the community marquee. There was so much more room than last year in Millennium Square, and we even had a cooling breeze circulating. There were many interesting conversations with people who enquired about our faith, and some who had no interest at all just thanked us for being there.
So what next? We really want to arrange events during the coming year, but we need your help and support. For a start, we are planning a rainbow communion service as soon as it can be arranged, probably on a Saturday afternoon.
Please follow us on our Facebook page to stay tuned for future events at https://www.facebook.com/Christiansatbristolpride/
In the meantime, may God bless you in all you do.
