About Us

About Us

The Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement works for the full inclusion of gay, lesbian and bisexual people in the Christian churches. We believe that human sexuality in all its richness is a gift of God gladly to be accepted, enjoyed and honoured as a way both of expressing and growing in love, and that it is entirely compatible with the Christian faith not only to love another person of the same sex, but to express that love fully in a personal sexual relationship.

We want to help churches and faith communities to have intelligent and compassionate conversations about sexuality, and we want individuals to be able to integrate their sexuality and spirituality in ways which are healthy and life-affirming. We look forward to the day when the lives, loves and identities of LGBT people are welcomed, valued and celebrated in the life and witness of the churches, and when LGBT people's gifts are accepted on equal terms with our brothers and sisters.

Founded in 1976, we're proud of our heritage and our name – but you don't need to be lesbian, gay, or Christian to join us – you can be exactly who you are. We're an increasingly diverse movement of people from across the Christian churches, as well as those of other faiths and beliefs. What we share is a commitment to love, faith and justice.
