Towards a More Inclusive Church
At our recent church council meeting we warmly welcomed the decision by the General Synod of the Church of England to allow pastoral use of Prayers of Love and Faith. Prayers of Love and Faith As society has come to recognise the diversity of human identity around issues of gender, sexuality and relationships, it becomes increasingly clear that this diversity echoes the richness of God’s creation and that we have a duty to celebrate all that reflects the breadth of God’s goodness and love. Whilst further national agreement is needed before we are able to hold stand-alone marriage blessings for same-sex couples, we look forward to that possibility, and in the meantime are pleased to discuss what we can offer – in the light of a resource that is designed for a wide-range of situations, and which allows for a good degree of creativity in worship. To find out more please contact the parish office who will put you in touch with a member of our ministry team.
Revd Nick Parker, Priest-in-Charge (Rector Designate)
