Support Organisations and Social Groups
Christian Queer Fellowship Otepoti
Our group is a ministry of the Anglican Parish of North Dunedin. The Anglican Church in Aotearoa New Zealand and Polynesia has recently declared:
"Over many years our Church has become increasingly aware of
the pain of the LGBT community. All too often our Church has been
complicit in homophobic thinking and actions of society, and has
failed to speak out against hatred and violence against those with
same-gender attraction. We apologise unreservedly and commit ourselves to reconciliation
and prophetic witness."
We provide a safe place for LGBTIQ people who wish to explore and deepen their Christian faith, knowing that God loves
us beyond our wildest imagination. Come and join us for Bible study, discussion, prayer or just chat! We are meeting in the St Martin's Anglican Church lounge (entrance on ground floor) on Tuesdays at 7PM.
Address: 194 North Road, North East Valley, Dunedin 9010
