Human Sexuality: A statement from All Saints PCC
Over the last year the PCC has been giving some consideration to what response we wish to make as a church to same sex couples who might wish to receive the support from their local church on entering a civil partnership or marriage. Along with the congregation we have been reading, thinking and praying. At our meeting on Saturday 11th March we agreed the following statement:
“The PCC of All Saints with Holy Trinity Church Loughborough seeks to be an inclusive community and as such wishes to fully affirm lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and intersex people within the life the church. Along with many other Christians we believe human sexuality is a gift to be celebrated within the context of faithful, loving and committed relationships. Same sex couples who have entered a civil partnership or marriage are welcome to discuss with our Rector a service of celebration, prayer and thanksgiving.”
The PCC also agreed to explore joining the Inclusive Church network and are beginning to look at what this would mean for us a church family. To find out more or to get actively involved in our journey towards being inclusive for all people please speak to the church wardens or the Rector. More information on Inclusive Church can be found at www.inclusive-church.org.uk
Wendy's Sermon from 19th February on Faith and Sexuality
On Sunday 18th February our Rector Revd. Wendy Dalrymple shared her thoughts with us on the recent conversations on faith and sexuality within the Church of England. This forms part of an going discernment that we at All Saints are engaged in as we consider ways in which we can be welcoming to all people and particular to those who identify as lesbian, gay, transsexual or bisexual.
This sermon was given at both the morning and evening services and is offered here for further thought and discussion.
