A full set of small group study resources to complement the Inclusive Church resource book series is available as free downloads below. Inclusive Church is grateful to the generosity of the Jerusalem Trust for a grant that has enabled these materials to be drawn together and made available for free. This grant was match-funded by Inclusive Church supporters and members.
These small group resources provide material that will last for 1.5 hours and would be ideal for home groups or Lent groups wishing to explore issues of inclusion further. The resources include notes for leaders, worship resources, video resources and discussion starters.
The material has been compiled by Jeremy Pemberton. Jeremy has been a priest of the Church of England for thirty-four years. He has worked in parishes in the North and East of England, as a Mission partner in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and in theological education. Latterly, he has been Senior Chaplain and Bereavement Services Manager for a large NHS Trust in Lincolnshire. He now works as a cathedral lay clerk, a civil celebrant and a consultant specialising in spiritual care and equality and diversity relating to sexuality and religion.
The Inclusive Church book series is published by Darton, Longman & Todd. The series comprises 6 titles: Disability, Mental Health, Gender, Poverty, Sexuality and Ethnicity. Each book contains stories from lived experience, a theological reflection and resources for further information. The books can be ordered here.
