Christ Church Cathedral is the historic Anglican cathedral in Oxford and has announced it will be holding a six-month sermon series on gay-inclusivity and pro-homosexual propaganda. Like the vast majority of Anglican churches, Christ Church is anything but a church of Christ. The Anglican Church is home to The Gospel Coalition’s resident gay priest, Sam Allberry who has advocated for and influenced Evangelical churches of all denominations to become more open to homosexual inclusion.

The Christ Church website reports:

Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford has announced that it will host a six-month series of LGBT+ friendly evangelical services with the help of local LGBT+ evangelicals, Jayne Ozanne and the Revd Marcus Green.

The Cathedral is the spiritual home for all those within the Diocese and welcomes Christians of all denominations – as well as those of other faiths and none. The Dean, the Very Revd Prof Martyn Percy, explained the rationale behind the new service: “We recognize that many have not yet been able to find their spiritual home in Oxford, and are looking for a safe place where they can find hope and healing with people they can trust. We are glad to be able to host this and look forward to welcoming all who those who are searching for the space and vibrant spirituality this service will offer.”
