We are a member of the Inclusive Church Network which seeks to include all who feel excluded from churches. Together we share this vision:
“We believe in inclusive church – a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate.
We will continue to challenge the church where it continues to discriminate against people on grounds of disability, economic power, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health, neurodiversity, or sexuality.
We believe in a Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”
Being part of the Inclusive Church Network is not a prize or an end but the beginning of a journey to learn more about us, the human race he came to save. “I was a stranger and you welcomed me” -Matthew 25.35.
