Equality Diversity & Inclusion

Home » News » Equality Diversity & Inclusion
Leigh & Hindley Methodist Circuit

From time to time you hear someone in church say something, or do something that jars with your sensibilities, conflicts with something you know doesn't sound or feel right, but you can't put your finger on it.

Sometimes people say things and do things in church without thinking and no one notices or bats and eyelid, yet it ought not to have been said, but our culture our upbringing our own social standing means that we don't always notice when something is fundamentally wrong.

Sometimes we're so used to our premises and our way of worship or doing things or conducting our affairs that we fail to notice how exclusive we really are, in so many ways.

In the New Year and in an attempt to open up the dialogue, Glazebury church will be exploring the material produced by the Methodist Church under the title Equality Diversity and Inclusion.

We're gathering at 10.30am on 11th January at Glazebury

to have an initial conversations, and at the same time welcome John Williams from Message Trust,
(I introduced him to Culcheth a couple of years ago!) after which we will share in one of Glazebury's famous lunches.

If you're interested or think this is something that your church would be interested in exploring, or may be this has a wider Circuit context and ought to be run at Circuit level, (which is probably the case) then do please come along to our initial gathering.

The material is available on the Methodist Web Site for you to see where we're heading.

We look forward to seeing you or may be a representative from your church on 11th January.

Speak to me if you would like more details.
