Church for All Group

Annalu Waller – talks about remit of working group to expore issues of inclusion and accessibility within the SEC. Notes we are called to go out and bring in the poor and crippled and blind and lame. She cringes about this language – but that is for another time.

Why do we exlude large parts of our society. We exclude the people, whom if we believe the gospel should be most invited. We need to ask why we exclude.

Notes that the Cathedral in Dundee is inaccessible to majority of parishers and this is getting worse as congregations get older.

Uk has high level of illiteracy yet we give out so many bits of paper.
Group is looking at Inclusive Language -don’t say please all stand to sing!
