The Archbishop of Wales will be joining lesbian and gay Christians for a carol service on Saturday (Dec 7th).
Dr Barry Morgan is the special guest at this year’s Carols for Christmas organised by the South Wales Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement.
As well as carols and readings, the service will include performances from the South Wales Gay Men’s Chorus and the LBT women’s choir, The Songbirds.
A collection will be taken for the Cardiff Adult Self-Injury Project.
Janet Jeffries, spokesperson for LGCM, said, “We are very honoured that the Archbishop has agreed to attend our Christmas Carols at what must be a very busy time of year for him. We very much appreciate the support he has shown to the lesbian and gay community, both at this event and by opening the Cardiff Mardi Gras earlier this year.”
Archbishop Barry said:
“I am delighted to support this carol service. Christmas is a time when we remember that God made all people in his own image and loves us all. Christ was born in a stable to parents who were refugees and he spent his life with those on the fringes of society or who were victimised because of what they were, and challenging those in authority. I think this is still a relevant message for today.”
The Christmas Carols takes place at City United Reformed Church, Windsor Place, Cardiff, on Saturday, Dec 7 at 7pm. Everyone is welcome to attend and share seasonal refreshments afterwards.
