An Inclusive Church

As an expression of our Core Values and Spirituality, we seek to nurture and live a Gospel Faith formed by the inclusive love of Jesus. Support for the LGBTIQ Community and their families and friends has been a long held core value of this community, leading us to be actively enagaged in the Equal Marriage Campaign in 2017.
