A Christ inspired community that celebrates diversity and embraces relational faith.
Faith that relates to the world around us with Love, Acceptance and Openness. Respecting all people, animals and nature as part of God’s diverse creation.
To meet people where THEY are.
To broaden expectations of Christianity and Christians by proclaiming full inclusion with no priorities.
To fight exclusion and isolation through volunteering and community works.
To make our meetings fun, lively and relevant to people of all faith journeys (and none).
We were at TransPride on Saturday 25th July at Dorset Gardens with our sister churches The Village MCC and North London MCC. It was a great day, awesome parade, great music, incredible choice of food stalls but most of all some truly great people. Lots of great conversations had, stickers applied and the snacks and drinks from Lunch Positive went down very well. Our good friend Aneesa Chaudhry dropped by to say hello on the way to her singing workshop and the Rainbow Chorus happily sported our stickers, some of them chased us up the path to get some as they were feeling left out.
It was a great day and a huge thank you to the organisers for inviting us and for looking after us during the day. Really looking forward to next year.
We held our TransPride Service at 6pm in The Brighthelm Centre with Reverend Catherine Dearlove. A huge thank you to her for joining us and for her sermon which was great and can be found on our sermons page.
We now have a date for the first session of our Preaching course. If you are interested in finding out about preaching, what it involves or just to boost your confidence, let us know.
Future courses are planned covering Preaching, Worship Leading and Communion for those who missed the last one.
It is great to see the future of the Church taking shape and the congregation stepping up to make it not only happen but happen in a new fresh way.
Come and see how we do that!
