OPEN TABLE IS CROWDFUNDING!
Open Table, a safe sacred space for LGBTQIA+ Christians & all who seek an inclusive church.In 2008 we lit the spark that started Open Table, a safe sacred space for LGBTQIA+ Christians & all who seek an inclusive church. We’re crowdfunding until the end of 2019 to make 2020 our best year yet! If you value Open Table, please share this message, and give if you can. The first Open Table community began at St Bride’s Liverpool in June 2008. Open Table has grown into a network of ecumenical Christian worship communities which offer a warm welcome to people who are: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer / Questioning, Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQIA) and all who seek an inclusive Church.Open Table communities now gather across England and Wales, hosted by inclusive churches in four denominations (Anglican, United Reformed Church, Baptist, Methodist). We are growing and seek the resources to help each current and emerging Open Table community share our mission, vision and values so they can be safe, sacred, sacramental, sustainable spaces for all. This crowdfunding campaign runs until 6.30pm on Sunday 31st December 2019. Donations will not be payable until early January 2020. If you are a UK taxpayer, you can also claim Gift Aid. Donating through Gift Aid means the Open Table network can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It will not cost you any extra. Our crowd-funding dream is to develop the network of groups and support new groups. Our target of £15,000 represents 15 hours a week for a development worker a week in 2020, plus a budget for resources to enable this development and much more!
