Who we are

We are just an ordinary group of Christians who worship together in Ordsall.

Some of us have been here pretty well all our lives.  Some of us are new to this church, some are new to the Christian faith.

We try to work as a family together, supporting one another - and knowing our differences!

Together we work to make a church that is safe, confident and prayerful.  We try to base what we do in shared worship, discussion and prayer.

In Sunday and weekday worship, in shared study and by listening carefully to one another, we try to put these commitments into practice.

And with confidence in God, we explore our faith to understand what we can and seeking to apply our faith in our lives.

 

Harvest Tea and Hymns


In January 2004 Ordsall Parochial Church Council agreed to join the Inclusive Church Network, and signed up to this statement:

We affirm that the Church's mission, in obedience to Holy Scripture, is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in every generation. 

We acknowledge that this is Good News for people regardless of their sex, race or sexual orientation. 

We believe that, in order to strengthen the Gospel's proclamation of justice to the world, and for the greater glory of God, the Church's own common life must be justly ordered. 

To that end, we call on our Church to live out the promise of the Gospel; to celebrate the diverse gifts of all members of the body of Christ; and in the ordering of our common life to open the ministries of deacon, priest and bishop to those so called to serve by God, regardless of their sex, race or sexual orientation.

We made this decision following discussion in the PCC and across the congregation.  This doesn't mean that everyone in the church (or even on the Church Council) will all be 100% happy with such a statement or commitment.  

Nonetheless as a parish we wish to affirm our openness to all who wish to worship with us - locally or across the world (and recognising that every church has its limits).
