Symon Hill: Walk of Repentance against Homophobia. Wednesday 26th October, 8pm in the upper room, St Mark’s
In the summer of 2011, Symon Hill walked from Birmingham to London as a pilgrimage of repentance for his former homophobic attitudes and beliefs.
He walked for almost 3 weeks, giving talks at churches along the way and encouraging churches and Christians generally to repent of homophobia and to think differently about sexuality. His walk was endorsed by a number of organisations including the Greenbelt festival and the Student Christian Movement. It was welcomed by the human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell and the former Bishop of Oxford, Richard Harries.
Now the walk is over Symon is giving a number of talks about both the pilgrimage itself and the issues involved.
Whatever your views on LGBT issues, you are invited to hear Symon speak.
