Uniting Network and Uniting Church involvement in Mardi Gras and World Pride

Mardi Gras Fair Day – Sunday 19 Feb

Rainbow Christians Together are holding a stall for this event which attracts more than 50,000 people. It’s a great opportunity to present the Uniting Church as welcoming and inclusive. We are seeking volunteers who can join a roster for one to one-and-a-half hours – leaving plenty of time to enjoy everything that Fair Day has to offer. If you can help out on the day please let Warren know via wrtalbot@gmail.com

Mardi Gras Parade – Saturday 25 Feb

A float to be shared with Acceptance, MCC, Equal Voices and ABBI members. Numbers are restricted to 60. Twenty places have been allocated for Uniting Church people. If individuals would like to be part of the float, please send your name, local church, and email to wrtalbot@gmail.com not later than Monday 23 January.  

Pancake Pride Celebration –  Tuesday 21 Feb

Pitt Street Uniting is delighted to be hosting the Rainbow Christians Together Faith@WorldPride event on Shrove Tuesday (aka the original Mardi Gras) – with food, great music, wonderful speakers, worship and fabulous friends. From 6pm for about three hours. Just turn up. More info here.
