We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced,
widowed, gay, confused, filthy rich, comfortable, or dirt poor.
We extend a special welcome to wailing babies and excited toddlers.
We welcome you whether you can sing like Pavarotti or just growl quietly to yourself.
You're welcome here if you're 'just browsing,' just woken up or just got out of prison.
We don't care if you're more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven't
been to church since Christmas ten years ago.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet,
and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep fit mums,
football dads, starving artists, tree huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians,
junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted.
We welcome you if you're having problems, are down in the dumps or don't
like 'organised religion.' (We're not that keen on it either!)
We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don't
work, can't spell, or are here because granny is visiting.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced, both or neither. We offer a special welcome
to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throat
as kids or got lost in the town centre (or another website) and wound up here
by mistake. We welcome pilgrims, tourists, seekers, doubters...and you!
Stay for as long or as short as you like, visit our various pages. We are a new but old parish starting afresh as the parish church of the village of Stoke. No we are not in denial, visit our history pages to discover how Stoke was not always part of Ipswich. And keep checking for our new ventures within Inspiring Ipswich.
