“We believe in inclusive church – a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate.”
Paul Church becomes an Inclusive Church
Update 8th October 2023
Paul Church has just been accepted as an official INCLUSIVE church. We are pleased and proud to be the first Anglican Church in Cornwall to receive this accreditation. The only other church recognised by Inclusive Church across Cornwall is Truro Methodists.
The Inclusive Church statement of belief is below…. But this is far from being just getting the certificate and permission to use the Inclusive Church logo. We are very aware that we need to keep challenging ourselves to look for ways so that everyone really feels both welcomed and included in our worship AND in all our activities.
If you are a visitor or a regular PLEASE challenge us in areas we can be even better!
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.”
Inclusive Church is a network of churches, groups and individuals uniting together around a shared vision.
