We are an Inclusive Church
We believe in Inclusive Church – church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, ethnicity, race, marital status or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which chooses to interpret scripture inclusively; 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.
In other news….
A very enjoyable carol service was held on Sunday 8th December. It was attended by 80 people, 23 of whom were children.. and one very special guest, the donkey. It captured the spirit of Byford perfectly.
