Modern Church

Formerly known as the Modern Churchpeople’s Union
Modern Church is a membership organisation made up of people, mostly with a Church of England background, who share an open-minded and thoughtful approach to Christian faith.
Members understand that:
~ genuine faith is committed to the search for truth, wherever it comes from
~ it is possible to think and talk about God in ways that make sense in our time and culture
~ we never have absolute certainty.

Norwich Christian Meditation Centre

The Norwich Christian Meditation Centre is an expression of St Augustine’s Church, Norwich. It is centred on the church hall, which also houses the Sunday morning Anglican congregation.

There is a speaker programme which brings world class teachers in the area of meditation and contemplative Christianity to Norwich. These are usually held in St Luke’s Church Centre.

This started in January 2008 with Richard Rohr.


This organisation was formed in 2017 from the amalgamation of two organisations that have campaigned for LGBTI+ liberation and integration in churches in England for over forty years - LGCM (formerly the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement) and Changing Attitude England.  As they themselves put it: “United to campaign together for the changes that we need to see for LGBTI+ people to fully embraced and for their gifts and contributions to the life and mission of the church in England to be fully realised.
