As a church, we want you to feel at home with us and aim to be a church that is inclusive, including to those who are LGBTQ+. This is our intention, though we are aware that we still have much to learn. We recognise the importance of clarity with what is meant by LGBTQ+ inclusive so here is a little more detail.
As with everyone who comes to St Barnabas you are welcome here on your own terms and like anyone else, we’d love to encourage you to serve the church according to your gifts.
In terms of limitations, sadly, same sex marriage is not yet legal in the Church of England, however, if you would like your relationship, partnership, or marriage blessed, please speak to a member of clergy.
