Equal Opportunities

The Ness Group of Churches

The Ness Group of Churches –  St Firmins Church, Thurlby, St John the Baptist, Baston and St Michael and All Angels, Langtoft  -values the dignity, worth and potential of all, and thus seeks to ensure equal priority and opportunity for all without regards to race, colour, religion, sex, national origin, age, handicap, veteran status, or any other characteristic in the use of any of our Churches and their facilities, or involvement in associated activities. This commitment to equal status includes, but is not limited to, the following areas: use of the Church buildings and all its facilities, participation in our PCC’s organised activities, membership of the PCC’s and the planning and scope of all its future endeavours.

Overall, our PCC’s will be guided by the principle that equal opportunity to access to the Church, its facilities and its activities is open to all.

Further, the PCC’s will seek to comply with all National and European Law that relates to the provision of equal opportunities; it will also be guided by advice and direction from the Church of England and the Diocese of Lincoln.
