The mission of the Spirit Pride conference is to provide a safe, positive LGBTQ+ and affirming space for members of the LGBTQ+ and community to explore issues of faith, spirituality, and sexuality. This conference is hosted by St. Andrew's Wesley United Church, a community that is passionate, inclusive, progressive and committed to justice.
The conference theme is Hope Rising: Celebrating our Spirituality.
Friday night's 7:00 keynote presentation features Kathy Baldock, author, LGBTQ+ advocate, international speaker and educator and Executive Director of Canyon Walker Production. Her 2014 book, Walking the Bridgeless Canyon: Repairing the Breach Between the Church and the LGBT community and accompanying "Untangling the Mess" presentations, blog, podcast, and videos, piece together the history of the LGBT persecution in the church. Kathy currently travels across the US and internationally sharing her eye-opening findings in her research. Her presentation on Friday will untangle the mess for you once and for all.
