Black Lives Matter

Christ Church & St John’s Radlett stand against racism

Jesus commanded us as Christians to love one another as brothers and sisters. “Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light” (1 John 2:10).  We are proud that our church community is multi-cultural and we value the richness that this diversity brings to our congregation. However, the protests in the summer of 2020 against racism and injustice have provided an opportunity for us to examine our role as a church in standing against racism in all its forms, and address wider systemic bias and injustice.  

We have established a Diversity, Inclusion, Cohesion & Engagement (DICE) Committee to explore together how we best achieve this and move forward so everyone feels included and welcomed. The first social event organised by this committee will be a summer barbecue on Church Field on Sunday 11 July, after the morning service.

God bless you
