The Rainbow Communion was a special LGBTQI listening group formed in 2017 by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.  The group's mandate was to offer a safe, respectful and confidential environment for people to tell stories of hurt or harm experienced through the church and also to share stories of God's grace experienced in Christian ministry.   All persons, people who identify as LGBTQI, and relatives, friends, co-workers, allies or others, were welcome to share their experience.     

When the listening process was completed in 2021, a response was compiled and forwarded to the General Assembly of our denomination, along with recommendations for implementation.    Stories shared by individuals were included only by consent of each person who addressed the listening panel.
