Inclusive Church

29 May 2020, 8 a.m.

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 the grounds of disability, economic

power, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health,

neurodiversity, 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.
