Faith

The parish of All Saints, St Mary and St Peter is known for its open and inclusive approach to the Christian faith. At the heart of this faith lies the Christian teaching of love for God and for our neighbours, along with a belief that Jesus' death and resurrection revealed God's love for the world in a new and unique way. However, we recognise that people come to God through a variety of different routes, and that there are many ways of worshipping and serving God.

Jesus' life on earth shows us the way to live, both through his acts and his teachings. When we refer to him as 'Son of God' we are saying that we believe him to have been sent to the world by his heavenly Father to reveal God to us in the fullest way possible. Jesus is also the second person of God the Holy Trinity, alongside the Creator or Father, and the Holy Spirit (the Comforter, Counsellor, Guide, the breath of God, the active power of Christ's love).

More information about the Christian faith and about being an Anglican may be found on the Church of England website.

A series of online leaflets which explore aspects of the Christian faith may be found at the 'Gospel Imprint' website.

'Inclusive Church' is a movement which believes that there should be no differentiation within the Church on the basis of sex, race, age, disability, sexual orientation etc.

'Ekklesia' - provides resources on Christian approaches to social, economic and political issues.

'Modern Church' - promotes theological debate from a liberal perspective.

A lighter approach to Church matters can be found on the Ship of Fools website.
