B RIGHT ON LGBT Festival: Free big screen showing of ‘The Shack’

Besi Besemar February 1, 2018

The Village Metropolitan Community Church will host a one-off screening of The Shack as part of the Soul Safari day of events during this year’s B RIGHT ON LGBT Festival.

The Village MCC 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.

Rev Michael Hydes

Rev. Michael, Senior Pastor at the Village MCC, said: “The Shack is worldwide best seller, last year released as a film by the same folk that produced Life of Pi. It’s a wonderful journey into a vision of God that helps us to live with the questions instead of grasping at easy answers. A wonderful way to challenge orthodox views of God and bring the Good news of the Gospel alive.”

“Everyone is welcome, and you never know, it might be the home that’s been waiting for”

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.

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