Statement of Inclusiveness

We declare that we are an open and inclusive congregation where all people can come together seeking God as revealed in Jesus and his life and teaching. 

We affirm the central beliefs of the Christian faith while respecting diversity of opinion in individual understanding and expression of that faith.

All people are welcome to participate fully in the life of our congregation in whatever way is appropriate for them. 

In appointing leaders, the Session is conscious of this commitment to inclusiveness.

Agreed by the members of St Stephen’s, August 1997
