Good God! Sexuality and Gender Equality in the Church  Impossibility or Imperative?

We had a very successful Study Day on sexuality and gender equality in the church here at St Mark’s on 20th July 2019.

On this page you will find links to various materials which were either prepared for use on the day – opening talks, workshop notes, bibliography etc – or which were produced on the day.

We hope you will find them helpful both as a reminder of the day and as material which you might like to share with others.

But if you do this, please ensure that you credit it appropriately – both as coming from the Study Day and where the author/source is known acknowledging that as well.

If you would like more information please contact the church office.
