Becoming a "Welcoming Church"

Becoming a "Welcoming Church"

by St. Alban's, Arcata

St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in SunnyBrae is pleased to announce that at our recent Annual Meeting the congregation voted unanimously to become a Welcoming Church. This designation means that we are a Christian community that fully welcomes gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual people and their participation in all areas and at all levels in the life of the congregation. The vote was taken after a year of thoughtful exploration, study and deliberation.

We plan to live into the promise of being a Welcoming Church by participating in the annual Gay Pride parade, conducting a November remembrance of murdered transgendered individuals, advertise our welcoming status through signage and brochures, create space in our library for books and DVDs on LGBT subjects, and continue to offer Forums on LGBT topics of interest.

We invite LGBT individuals to visit us at 1675 Chester Avenue, Arcata, California 95521, Telephone: (707) 822-4102 or visit us on the web at All are welcome here.
