We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, LGBT+, confused, filthy rich, comfortable or dirt poor.
We welcome you whether you’re looking for heaven or just walk your dog in the heavens.
You’re welcome if you’re from the top, middle or bottom of town, feeling on top of the world, having a mid-life crisis, or bouncing along the bottom.
You're welcome here if you're 'just browsing', just woken up or just got out of prison.
We extend a special welcome to wailing babies and excitable toddlers.
You’re welcome whether you work for peace, work for Ecotricity or can’t find or cope with work; whether your ambition is to stop global warming or just to survive another day.
We welcome you whether you prefer Ravel, the Ramones, Kanye West or the Trinity Boys.
We extend a warm welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast.
We don't care if you're more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven't been to church since Christmas ten years ago.
We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters.
We welcome those who are in recovery and those who are still addicted.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced, both or neither.
We don’t care if you drink cider with Rosie, drink at the Crown and Sceptre, or drink more than you should, or if you shop at the Farmers’ Market or Home Bargains.
We offer a welcome to those who think the Earth is flat, can't spell or are only here because you’re visiting granny in the hospital next door.
We offer a special welcome to those who love the sub rooms or Subway, and those who feel sub-standard and could use a prayer right now.
We welcome pilgrims, seekers, doubters; we welcome you.

We are part of the Inclusive Church movement. Inclusive Church is a group of Christians uniting together around our statement of belief:
"We believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ."
