We are far from a perfect church, but we work together to discover what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ in the 21st Century.
Birstall is now registered as an Inclusive Church, click here for more details
"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."
Here at Birstall we are trying to find ways to put those words into practice.
If you are wondering whether you might fit in here, try measuring yourself against these words, which we used at the beginning of Sunday worship recently: "Whoever you are, wherever you come from, whatever baggage you are carrying with you, you are welcome here."
Our Sunday morning services start at 10:30 am, with evening service at 6:00 pm on alternative Sundays.
