There are a number of Christian organisations relating to these issues which you may wish to contact.

Accepting Evangelicals A network of Evangelical Christians who believe the time has come to move towards the acceptance of faithful, loving same-sex partnerships at every level of church life, and the development of a positive Christian ethic for gay and lesbian people. Formed in 2004, it launched as a charity in June 2010.

Association of Welcoming & Affirming Baptists [USA] Association of over 60 welcoming and affirming Baptist congregations and groups in the United States, working for the full inclusion of lesbian and gay people in the church.

Changing Attitude A network in the Anglican Church open to all whose concern is to work for an emotionally intelligent, compassionate awareness of human sexuality (lesbian and gay issues in particular). Their goal: the day when the Anglican Church fully accepts, welcomes and offers equality of opportunity to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

Courage  Site of the former Courage ministry, which retains a large resource of articles, testimonies, Roy Clements’ and Tony Cross archives and other information about the ministry that became infamous for making the journey from ex-gay to gay-affirming.  See also Jeremy’s Post-Courage blog.

Evangelical Fellowship for Lesbian and Gay Christians (EF) Provides fellowship and support through twice-yearly weekend conferences, a quarterly newsletter and some regional groups.

Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (FFLAG) An organisation of parents of lesbian daughters and gay sons which seeks to promote the well-being of lesbian, gay and bisexual people, their families and friends by:

  • Support, through confidential helplines and parents’ groups
  • Education and information
  • Working locally, nationally and in Europe on issues of equality for lesbian, gay and bisexual people

FFLAG supports families and works constructively to combat prejudice and discrimination and to help create a society that is respectful of human diversity.

Inclusive Church An Anglican network of individuals and organisations that have signed up to Inclusive Church’s Declaration of Belief – that the Church’s mission is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in every generation – Good News for all people, regardless of their sex, race or sexual orientation.

Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement (LGCM) Speaks within the church and seeks to take Christ to the gay community.

OuterSpace (at Greenbelt) An LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) group of Christians at Greenbelt. Members are committed to the church and to helping everyone find their way in the church, no matter what their background. OuterSpace tries to look beyond the dry intellectual debates that surround the whole area of sexual orientation, and to focus instead on hearing the stories of real people’s faith, in order to understand the different journeys that gay and lesbian Christians are on.

Two:23 Network The ministry that has replaced Courage (formed by long-term committed Courage members) that provides a network of gay LGBT Christians and quarterly meeting (at present) in central London.
