Which colour?

There has been some debate recently about which colour the vicar’s stole (the “scarf” he wears for services) should be. It’s After Trinity (or Ordinary Time) at the moment but today is Pride Sunday – so which one should Heston wear?

Sunday 4 August – LGBT Liberation Sunday

The first weekend of August, Leeds celebrates LGBT Pride. At All Hallows’ church, we start Pride Sunday by celebrating the gift of diversity in God’s creation, and we would love you to join us!

Our Bible reading is about Jacob wrestling with God. It is a story of struggle and transformation that speaks so well to the experience of many LGBT people of faith.

In our service, we celebrate the gift of LGBT people in our midst, we thank God for the progress that has been made with LGBT liberation in our country and across the world, and we pray for full liberation to come.

10:30am, at All Hallows’ Church.

Pride Sunday 5th August 2018

Sunday 5th August is Leeds Pride Sunday #LeedsPride. We will be meeting at church as usual at 10.30am and then, for those who want to join us, we will be heading down into the city. There is a marching space booked for ‘Faiths at Pride’ and we also have an invitation to march with the Green Party crowd!

Pride Sunday decorations

Today was a chance to decorate our church with all the colours of the rainbow.

Terror Texts

Our visiting preacher for Pride Sunday was Jonathon Tallon who also hosted a “Christians in Conversation” at All Hallows on the Saturday afternoon before Pride Sunday. He has allowed us to publish his PowerPoint presentation and bibliography here as a resource on the topic of “Terror Texts” – those passages in the Bible that are used to condemn but may actually be taken out of context and misunderstood.
