It was great to have some key figures at the MOSAIC National Conference on Saturday 26th June 2021 and you can download the text of some of the speeches made by these key figures below.
The speech that seemed to grip the headlines of the national press was the one presented by the Bishop of Liverpool, The Rt Revd Paul Bayes who said that the Church of England should recognise same-sex weddings and be a place of inclusion and where local leaders can make decisions on whether to marry, or bless the marriage of same-sex couples. The full text of his speech can be downloaded here and the article written for The Guardian newspaper can be found here.
The Revd Rachel Wilson talked about an inclusive church, what it looks, smells & feels like and asked how a truly inclusive church might look. The full text of her speech can be downloaded here and we are sure it will challenge both church leaders and those in church congregations on how they include people from all walks of life.
Dean Govender used an analogy based on cheese to challenge the Conference about which direction they were heading in and how they would ensure that church remained relevant today. The full text of his speech can be downloaded here.
MOSAIC continues to campaign for a fully inclusive church where all can find dignity and fullness of life.
