Connections & Conversations

Towards inclusion in The Salvation Army

Looking for the INCLUDED 2021 sessions / videos? 
Presentations from Chick Yuell, Kathy Baldock, Dale Martin, Anthony Venn Brown, Paula Williams, Mark Rowland, and creative and testimonial contributions from all over the world can now be viewed within our video resources, as well as our YouTube channel.

What is INCLUDED?

Sit down, relax and know that you are most welcome here. 

This is a place of conversation and learning for all people, but it was specifically created by and for people involved with The Salvation Army so that the voices of LGBTQI+ persons can be heard and celebrated. Though some members of the LGBTQ+ community have found a spiritual home within the Salvation Army, we recognize that many still struggle to be included, with people of diverse sexualities and gender (DSG) sometimes feeling shamed, humiliated or even driven out of our part of the church.

We affirm the creation of all people in the image of God, seeking to discern and respond to that image respectfully, with love and compassion. We hope that you will find INCLUDED to be encouraging, challenging and perhaps even inspiring.
