Transgender & Non-binary Inclusion Statement from North East Thames AM
“Facing turbulent times, Quakers in Britain seek a future where Quaker communities are loving, inclusive and all-age. All are heard, valued and supported both in our needs and our leadings. Everyone’s contribution is accepted according to their gifts and resources. All are welcomed and included.”
Our faith in the future (Quakers in Britain, 2015)
Quakers in North East Thames Area Meeting are aware that our community is a continuing creation in which we seek to know and love ourselves and one another in all our differences, united at a profound level in our efforts to reach and respond to others in the things that are eternal.
We want our Local Meetings to be safe places where each person can come as their own true self and find a spiritual home.
We recognise that there is a growing awareness in society, and in the Society of Friends, that the terms ‘man’ and ‘woman’ prove incomplete when describing the diversity of gender identity and experience that exists.
We hope that we can all grow together in our understanding of gender identity.
We want it to be known that our Area Meeting is a place where all are welcomed and nurtured, including people who are transgender and non-binary.
We hope that we can share a spiritual companionship, creating a place where we can all listen to and connect with one another, and accompany one another with love.
