Many LGBTIQ Christians have struggled with issues relating to their sexuality & faith or have been subjected to harmful judgment & behaviour by churches, pastors*, individuals or congregations.
Both our Canberra and Goulburn groups enjoy plentiful Pot Luck dinners, lots of interesting discussion and fantastic fellowship. Often our Canberra members travel to Goulburn to enjoy the increased networking and interaction between the two groups!
