An article appeared in the Andover Advertiser this week about the attitudes of local churches to being inclusive and welcoming to all those who are looking to find a spiritual home, irrespective of sexual orientation or gender. The full article can be found here, but here is a reminder of the Methodist Church's stance on such matters:
"Irrespective of sexuality and gender, all are welcome within the Methodist Church.
"Indeed the Methodist Conference, the governing body of the Church, recognises, affirms and celebrates the participation and ministry of lesbians and gay men in the church. Methodist people are called to combat repression and discrimination, to work for justice and human rights and to give dignity and worth to people whatever their sexuality."
You can find further details on the current work being undertaken by the Methodist Church regarding this here.
