Being an inclusive community
We seek to be a welcoming, open and inclusive congregation. Respect for each person’s individual experience of God is of the utmost importance as is the safety of children and vulnerable adults. We encourage and support the participation of people of all ages and abilities in the leadership of worship.
We are aware of the power of words to shape our world. Therefore we seek to use language that is inclusive of all, including a variety of images of God some of which will be feminine.
When reading the Bible during worship we use the New Revised Standard Version which uses inclusive language.
