St Edmund’s joins the Honest Church campaign

Oct 7, 2022

A lot of churches don’t let on whether they are affirming and welcoming of LGBTQ+ people.
Here in St Edmund’s we are committed to welcoming and affirming everyone, regardless of their sexuality or gender. That’s why we have become an Inclusive Church.

We recognise it’s not always easy for LGBTQ+ people to find a church where they feel at home and safe to be who they are. The Student Christian Movement has launched a campaign for churches to be honest about where they stand so that people can decide whether that’s the right place for them.

LGBTQ+ people and their staunch allies exist in churches of all kinds, but everyone needs to be able to find the right place to worship and grow as a Christian in safety. Honesty is the beginning of being able to do that.
