We are a friendly group based in the city of Brighton and Hove. We think our approach will appeal particularly to those who find difficulty with the traditional beliefs of the Church, to readers of the books of Bishop Spong and other Progressive theologians. . Also those who enjoy exploring ideas and questions in a relaxed and informal, inclusive atmosphere.
Do come to our meetings, if you can’t get there for any reason you are welcome to join our private Facebook group: Thinking Aloud Allowed for discussion there, or more publicly meet with us via Twitter @aloud_allowed.
Venue & Meeting Times
We meet monthly at Hove Methodist church on the second Sunday of each month starting at 6.30 pm, but gathering a little before then for tea & coffee, biscuits and a catch up.
We began life in September 2015 as Beyond Belief. They say Brighton is the most ‘Godless’ town in Britain. We think it depends on what your concept of ‘God’ happens to be. We take an inclusive view of faith and hope to meet others who are not tied down by creeds or dogma. Since then the group has morphed into a slightly different incarnation with a more church community feel, but strongly maintaining its Progressive outlook. We welcome people from all walks of life and faith traditions including those with no particular affiliation.
