The YMCA works hard to be totally inclusive within the context of a confident Christian identity.
Welcoming people of all faiths and of none is, and must remain a top priority for the YMCA. The YMCA will create opportunities for people to explore the Christian faith, and be supported in exploring their spirituality should they want to, in keeping with the historic tradition of the movement.
Faith plays a tremendous role in the work of many charitable organisations in the UK and internationally. The YMCA approaches faith in a way that impacts everyday life throught the delivery of different services for the whole person - body, mind and spirit. The three key areas of our work signified by the triangle on our logo (mind, body, and spirit) includes the spiritual life of all people. It is our faith based ethos which motivates the YMCA to be totally inclusive - to openly welcome and support people regardless of their race, gender, ability, faith, age, or sexuality.
The role of the YMCA Chaplaincy is to:
* Meet people where they are in life and who they are without judgement or presumption - be respectful* Give spiritual guidance in a way that allows the individual to feel affirmed - be supportive* Invite all to take an interest in the Christian faith and accompany them in life - be friendly
We are Christians from a diversity of churches and traditions with a common motive, the belief that God calls us to be outward looking and caring about the needs of neighbours and friends.
