Equality & Diversity
From one human being he created all races of people and made them live throughout the whole earth. He himself fixed beforehand the exact times and limits of the places where they live. Amos 5:24 Faith in Christ Jesus is what makes each of you equal with each other, whether you are a Jew or a Greek, a slave or a free person, a man or a woman. Galatians 3:28 (CEV)
As a diocese we seek to embed responsibility for diversity and equality across all departments, officers and parishes.
The Bishop of Sherwood is Senior Staff Champion for diversity and equality. The question over whether the new Bishop of Sherwood continues as Senior Staff Champion will be addressed within the appointment process for the See of Sherwood and Archdeacon of Newark.
The Partnerships and Mission team continue to support and develop; the disability awareness group, Enable; ministry among deaf people; work with older people, mental health awareness; BAME Anglican groups, Racial Justice Sunday, Hate crime, work with refugees, asylum seekers and those caught in modern slavery.
