We pride ourselves on being a member of the Inclusive Church Network whose core belief 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.”
