Liturgy and hymns
Inclusive Church has prepared a resource pack that can be used as materials for services of dedication and thanksgiving following a civil partnership or same-sex marriage.
In terms of inclusive prayers, hymns etc, we would also recommend worship resources from the Iona Community and Wild Goose publishing, anything by June Boyce-Tillman, but especially the hymn book ‘A Rainbow to Heaven’, and the book of hymns by women composers by Multirude of Voyces, who are also planning to publish an inclusive hymnal.
