Affirm is a UK network of Baptist Christians working together for LGBT+ inclusion, founded in 2000.

Our purpose is threefold:

  • to give pastoral support and affirmation to LGBT+ Christians
  • to work towards the wider acceptance of faithful, loving same-sex relationships through engaging in the current debates in the churches on issues of sexuality
  • in doing so, to embody and express the all-embracing love of Christ.
  • Please visit the ‘About’ page to find out more about our ministry and the history of the group, feel free to explore our resources and get in touch.
