How can people from different perspectives, backgrounds and organisations work together effectively in urban place-shaping? How is socio-ecological transformation acheived? This day conference combines theoretical thinking on socio-ecological place-shaping with practical, practitioner-led insights and discussions. It is relevant for a broad audience interested in the challenges of urban place-shaping. It provides an opportunity to listen and learn, share thoughts and experiences and network with others.

The event opens at 10am for refreshements and starts at 10.30am. Lunch is provided in the price of the ticket.

Tickets cost £10 and are available from Eventbrite

Queer Faith Voices: is faith inherently queer?

This event is BSL signed.

Far from being a thing of the past, faith is on the rise and 84% of the global population identifies with a religious group. What does this mean for queer folk, especially queer folk of faith?

Come along to Leaf on Bold Street and join in the conversation as we hear diverse voices explore topics relating to queer and faith identities, considering and celebrating what it means to be an LGBTQIA+ person of faith today. Everyone is welcome from all faiths and none!

Scandal of a Queer God - St Bride's Public Theology Lecture with Revd Liz Edman

Was Jesus perfect, or was he human? How Christians answer this question has vast implications for what we say and do in the name of our faith. Using queerness as an interperative lens, Liz Edman will explore how the story of the Syro-Phoenician woman disrupts an overemphasis on Jesus’ divinity. Together we will discuss how dismantling the lie of the perfect Jesus can help bring a healthier understanding of our faith to bear on the religious & political turmoils that now engulf our world.

Buffalo Riot 'Daydream Mouth' Album Launch

Nothingville Music Presents...

Liverpool's very own self-produced 90's rock powerhouse Buffalo Riot are back with a new sound, and it's bigger than ever: DAYDREAM MOUTH, the record is due to be released on 20th September 2019. They celebrated their 10th anniversary as a band in January of this year, and after working on this new record for two years it seems like the perfect time to release it: the album they've always been capable of, just waiting to make. With synergistic vocals from songwriters Ben Singleton and Iain Morley, the album has an American rock radio vibe: harmony, big sounds, resonance. The album stems from a really positive place, and that's reflected in the music. Paul Carroll on guitar, Jamie Sell on bass and Andy Fernihough on drums make up the rest of the band: a formation that just undeniably works.

Christians celebrate Pride in Liverpool with march, stall and Cathedral service

As part of the celebration of Pride in Liverpool next weekend, representatives of inclusive churches will be marching under a Christians at Pride banner.

Ministers and members of Merseyside churches are welcome to join the Christians At Pride group in solidarity with the Open Table Liverpool community. As Bishop Paul expressed on Twitter before walking with the Christians At Pride group last year:

‘Whatever Christians may believe about same-sex relationships, we surely all agree that homophobia / biphobia / transphobia is evil and wrong... Resist violence, resist homophobia, bless people, walk with us’.
