Lament & Love: A Vigil

Lament & Love: A Vigil


Join us for a time of prayer, reflection, and recommitment to ensuring that love and justice prevail following verbal assaults, threats, property destruction, and other attacks on our congregations because of their support for LGBTQIA+ people and members of our families and congregations.


  • 2023 Justice Summit on trans and nonbinary belonging will be on October 7, both in person in Boston and online. This is a full day of worship, workshops, and community-building to help create and support congregations where trans and nonbinary people belong. Register by September 16. 
  • An affinity group for congregations to go deep on becoming more trans-affirming. In addition to the justice summit, affinity group participants will get additional learning on trans issues and leading transformational change within their congregations, and participating churches will receive a mini-grant for a trans-affirming initiative in their community. Applications are due August 15:
  • If you missed the Church Safety Workshop hosted a few weeks ago in partnership with the UCC Insurance Board, use this form to receive the recording and resources.
  • Through our covenant partners, authorized ministers in SNE can access 3 free counseling sessions.
  • If your church is targeted, contact your Area Conference Minister to let them know and reach out to other faith communities and other community organizations for support and local response.
