St Stephen’s is an Inclusive Church

inclusive church logoOur Inclusive Church Charter

We affirm that the Church’s mission, in obedience to Holy Scripture, is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in every generation.
We acknowledge that this is Good News for all humanity without discrimination or distinction.
We believe that, in order to strengthen the Gospel’s proclamation of justice to the world, and for the greater glory of God, the Church’s own common life must be justly ordered.
To that end, we call on our Church to live out the promise of the Gospel:

  1. To celebrate the diverse gifts of all members of the body of Christ.
  2. Ordering our common life to open the ministries of deacon, priest and bishop to those so called to serve by God.

St Stephen’s Parish Prayer

O gracious Father, by whose Spirit of love we have been brought into the sacred fellowship of this Parish; strengthen, we pray, the bonds which unite us, helping us to worship you with such holy worship, to serve you and all your children with such unselfish love and to give so freely for the extension of your kingdom, that our Parish may faithfully fulfill its mission to witness boldly to your truth and convey your life to all; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
