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 recent protests 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 consulted with our members and we are establishing a Diversity, Inclusion, Cohesion & Engagement (DICE) Committee to explore together how we best achieve this and move forward so everyone feels included and welcomed.
One of our first actions will be to send out a survey to all our members to explore their experiences and gather their perspectives. All views will be welcome and appreciated.
God bless you
NB: The Diocese of St Albans has recently (July 2020) published an Ethnic Minorities Charter.
News, December 2020:
RARE (Radlett Action for Racial Equality) is planning a Zoom Inter faith event on 14 December 2020. The main purpose is to get the various faiths together and celebrate Christmas and Hanukah and other faiths' ways of celebrating during this time of year. The "theme" of the event is Radlett Inter-faith and Community Festivity. We plan to send the Zoom link to all who are registered to attend. People can register for the event by sending an email to Info'radlettactionracialequality.org.
