Speaker: Revd Nick Bundock
On September 24th 2018 St James and Emmanuel in Didsbury was hailed as ‘The Church that Changed’ in a story that was trending on Twitter. Four years previously the same platform had denounced them as a church that had contributed to the death of a gay teenager. The intervening years have been ones of self-reflection, repentance and radical change as they, a broadly evangelical church, work out what it means to be fully inclusive. At the centre of this change has been a very special person, Lizzie Lowe.
