St Mary of Charity, one of the churches in The Benefice of Faversham, is an Inclusive Church.
Inclusive Church is a Christian organisation with the aim of advocating for the full inclusion of all people in Christian churches. It seeks "to raise awareness about the ways that people feel excluded by the church". It unites Christians around this statement of belief:
"We believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in 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."
We take safeguarding very seriously at St Mary of Charity. All of our church leaders and home visitors are DBS checked and attend safeguarding courses.
