INCLUSIVE CHURCH - www.inclusive-church.org.uk

Inclusive Church and Young Inclusive Church are working to break down the barriers to full inclusion at all levels of the Anglican Communion. This means that it is essential that women can be bishops and that lesbian and gay people - both in relationships and single can be ministers. As part of full inclusion, they believe that Churches wishing to do so should be able to hold Civil Partnership ceremonies and blessing services for same-sex couples. They are supportive of the government’s same-sex marriage proposals. They are also working to tackle the exclusion within the church which results from poverty, mental-wellbeing, ethnicity and disability.
