"Wherever you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here! We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, gay, lesbian, transgender, cisgender, queer, celibate, confused, rich, comfortable, poor, any

race, and any religion.

 

We extend a special welcome to wailing (!)

babies and excited toddlers. We welcome you whether you sing like Pavarotti or just growl quietly to yourself.

 

You’re welcome here if you’re just browsing, just woken up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven’t been to church since Christmas years ago.

   We welcome you if you are having problems, are down in the dumps, or don’t like organized religion, or are here because Granny is visiting and wanted to come to church.

  We welcome those who are inked, pierced, both or neither. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now or just got lost in the Borough and wound up here by mistake. We welcome pilgrims, tourists, seekers, doubters and YOU!"

(Adapted from Coventry Cathedral’s Welcome Statement)

We are a federated (blended) congregation of The American Baptist Churches in the United States and the United Church of Christ.
