I agree with this sentiment but I get the feeling that it doesn’t often feel like it on the ground.

“On Back to Church Sunday I’ll be at St Paul’s, Wokingham, welcoming new people to the church and proclaiming a very old and very welcome message, because we bishops can’t say it too much: ‘Church: it’s definitely not about how you look, what you do, how you sound, how well you sing. Just come as you are. Come with a friend. All are welcome. Churches are still where best friends are made. And where people can be just as they are.’”
