On Saturday 13th July some members of St John’s will be joining another group at Croydon PrideFest to walk under a Christians at Pride banner and show our support for the LGBT+ community.
The parade leaves from Marks & Spencers and will walk for about 45 minutes to Wandle Park, where members of the London Mozart Players will be providing some of the entertainment. You can see the route of the parade here. If you’d like to come, please let Fr Daniel (firstname.lastname@example.org) know, preferably by Monday 1st July.
St John’s is a member of Inclusive Church, and we share their vision:
“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.”
