WELCOME TO CFS

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

You can be young, old, middle-aged, married, single, divorced, engaged, healthy, sick, rich or poor, vegan, coeliac or a carnivore.

Inclusive Church logo

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.

We believe church is inclusive – celebrating and affirming every person rather than discriminating.

A space for women and non-binary people to talk about their experiences of violence and harassment. 
It was incredibly special and we feel so grateful to have this space.
