Challenging Stereotypes - Building an Inclusive Church (Panel event with workshops)

28th October 2017, 15:30 to 17:30, Elvet Methodist Church, 8 Old Elvet, Durham DH1 3HL

Join Durham Joint Anglican and Methodist Society for an early-evening panel event discussing how we can make our faith communities more inclusive and representative of the most underrepresented groups in our society.

"All are welcome, all are valued: we believe in a Church which treats each individual with dignity, and which does not discriminate on grounds of sexuality, race, ability, gender, age, religion, social class or economic status."

Featuring speakers from Durham Students' Union LGBT+ Association, the Northumbria Deaf Church and Inclusive Church alongside academics and other panellists, this event aims to discuss how far the churches have come, and what can be done to build more welcoming and inclusive church communities in the future.

There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and raise concerns in a non-judgemental setting, and refreshments will be provided.
