We are delighted to announce that we are now part of “Inclusive Church Network”. Inclusive Church is a network of churches, groups and individuals uniting together around a shared vision. The vision of Inclusive church network is:
"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."
For us at St John’s this means we are continuing to welcome everyone and we do not discriminate. By joining the network of churches we are making it easier for people to understand that they are always welcome.
