Two:23 Network www.two23.net
We are a network of Christians, connected by LGBT (Lesbian, gay,bisexual and transgender) issues, who have discovered that God loves us just as we are. Our vision is to create a space where absolutely everyone is welcome, whoever you are and wherever you’re at in terms of church or issues of sexuality and sexual identity. Many of us are from evangelical backgrounds, but we now represent a broad church and aim to make all feel welcome. We meet up four times a year to worship together in central London, and you can find out more about us via http://two23.net
