WELCOME TO CFS

Our anthem does a pretty good job of explaining who we are, with lyrics including…

You can be young, old, middle-aged, married, single, divorced, engaged, healthy, sick, rich or poor, vegan, coeliac or a carnivore. Gay, queer, bi or pan, genderfluid, non-binary or trans, people of all skin colours and race, autistic or deaf you will be embraced.

We’re all made in God’s image, our diversity helps us to envisage, all that God is and created us to be, as we live our lives here in Southend-on-Sea.

FIND YOUR PLACE

we're so excited to announce Embrace 2020!!

For Christians who no longer want to ignore the experience of LGBTQ+ people in the church. 

Part of the beauty of Embrace is meeting real people and hearing their experience. Embrace is about listening to the voices and stories that have long been silenced in the church. Embrace is about coming with an open heart to learn how others have experienced church and Christian communities. Embrace is a space for listening, reflecting and asking questions.
