Daring 2020

Daring 2020 – now Online! (6 June)

Thank you for everyone who joined Daring Online! We had over 70 people attend!

This was the first time we held Daring or any elements online and we would love to know what you thought about the day and any ideas for the future. The feedback survey has 10 questions and is designed so you can complete it even if you did not attend on the day.

The survey can be found here and will close at 11pm Sunday 21st June.

Thank you for your contribution.

Now more than ever connection is an important part of our lives during social isolation.

Daring prides itself on hosting gathering focused on spending time with and learning from others, in an affirming space welcoming all LGBTIQA+ Christians, their friends, families and allies.

This year, the way we gather together in all aspects of our lives has changed drastically, but this doesn’t mean we can’t connect in a different way whilst upholding what Daring has always meant: fellowship, affirmation, and more…. but all online!

Daring will proceed on the June long weekend 2020 but as online.
