Our 2018 day Conference exploring how to make our churches more inclusive was held on Saturday 27th October 2018 at Staffordshire University.
Our aim is to help churches to become more inclusive – as Oasis Foundation Open Church Charter says:
“any person regardless of sexuality or gender identity will find our local church to be a place of welcome, embrace, inclusion, affirmation and sanctuary.”
