Inclusive Church

Inclusive Church

St Chad's and St Mary's Parochial Church Councils have agreed to the following statement:

"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 are committed to welcoming ALL to our worship and community events

The Vicar is very willing to work with couples to organise services of prayer and thanksgiving in Church to go alongside civil partnerships or weddings held at Registry offices. If you would like to discuss please do get in touch.
