nclusive Church has been looking forward to the publication of this report. Together with partners in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Anglican Coalition, Inclusive Church welcomed the opportunity to submit evidence to the commission.
The Very Rev’d Dianna Gwilliams, Dean of Guildford Cathedral and Chair of Inclusive Church has made this statement:
“Inclusive Church welcomes the publication of the report from the commission led by Sir Joseph Pilling. It is a reflection of careful listening to many voices in church and state, though listening and learning remains an ongoing task. We also look forward to the House of Bishops response and the guidance which will be issued to churches. We hope that this will enable all Christians to find ways of celebrating the covenantal love between people which reflects the love of God for all people.”
Inclusive Church is keen to work with the House of Bishops to ensure that the church is a place that welcomes and affirms LGB&T people within the church and wider society.
