Brandon Robertson book launch at The Village MCC

Besi Besemar October 6, 2017

The Village MCC will host Brandon Robertson again as he visits the UK to promote his latest book “Our Witness: The Unheard Stories of LGBT+ Christians”.

The event will feature readings from Brandon whose personal story is contained in the book, a presentation about the harm of non-inclusion and the new queer revival spreading throughout Christianity. There will be time for question and answers.

Brandan Robertson is an author, pastor, thought-leader, and contemplative activist working at the intersections of spirituality, sexuality, and social renewal.

Rev Michael Hydes, Senior Pastor of the Village MCC, said: “I’m really excited that The Village MCC is hosting Brandan Robertson again. His last visit was inspiring and his book Nomad a very welcome addition to my library of well-read books.

Since then Brandan has written True Inclusion: Becoming Communities That Embrace All (Chalice Press, 2017), and edited Our Witness: The Unheard Stories of LGBT+ Christians (Cascade Books, 2018).He has also become the pastor of the Mission Gathering Progressive Church in San Diego,USA and so I have no doubt has a wealth of new experiences and stories to share with us. I can’t wait to hear him speak!”

The Village Metropolitan Community Church Brighton and Hove is a church that was created by LGBT+ Christians, their families, friends, and allies.

It’s an MCC (Metropolitan Community Church) called to support the LGBT+ communities in whatever ways it can.

The Village MCC Brighton and Hove offers a safe space where anyone can feel at home, fully affirmed in their sexuality and gender identity.

Church members are active in the larger community, offering emergency aid and support to the homeless and vulnerably housed.

They worship together every Sunday evening at 6 pm at the Somerset Day Centre, Kemptown, where their minister, Rev. Michael, offers spiritual direction and pastoral care.
