All welcome, no strings attached.
The church is a diverse community in many ways, and Brunswick UC is no exception. We are rich and poor, old and young, Anglo and (increasingly) from other cultures. And our sexualities are as diverse as our personalities. Here at BUC you’ll meet lesbian and gay, bisexual and queer, and supportive straight friends – and whoever you are, we hope you’ll feel right at home.
We also know we have some way to go, if we’re to fully embody the barrier-breaking welcome that Jesus demonstrated in his day. For this welcome message to be honest, we also need to say that we welcome people who don’t agree with everything that the minister, worship leaders or church council might say. (Hey, we don’t all agree with each other!) You’ll hear radical love in our preaching and in prayer, and at times we’ll still fall short of living it as we should. But we’re learning, and trying, and growing together as the Body of Christ.
So welcome, with no strings attached.
