I thought it was long overdue that I posted a photo of a building and a place, filled with people, all of whom have become increasingly important to me over the last 6-7 months - All Souls Church, Langham Place. It is 2 mins from Oxford Circus tube station, right next to Broadcasting House.

My feature on All Souls is here:

I went along for the first time in March and I have not missed a single Sunday since! I went from being a committed atheist to an evangelical Christian in the space of two hours. The Church has added real value and meaning to my life.

The All Souls website is here:

If you want to try the Church out before coming down in person, or if you are not in London, or cannot get to the Church, you can listen to the sermons given at All Souls here:

As I said, I have a different view, opinion and take on homosexuality and gay right to All Souls.

But All Souls is not "homophobic" and to describe it as such is wrong. All Souls welcomes everyone and has gay members amongst its congregation.

Also, my views on homosexuality and gay rights has nothing to do with my admiration and respect for artists and creatives who are gay. That would be very shallow and superficial.

I believe passionality in equality for all and always have done. That belief is founded on respect for human beings and respect for human rights. It has nothing to do with who I admire and respect in the creative arts field.

What I will say about the evangelicals and the Christian community that I am now a part of, is that they are all kind, decent, honest people with integrity, who go out of their way to help others regardless of that person's race, sexuality, age, faith, disability or gender. That is what I am signing up to. How many other individuals and organisations can say the same? Believe me, individuals of that quality are a rare treasure indeed, and now I have found them I am not letting them go!

My position on homosexuality and gay rights remains the same. I will always proactively campaign for and champion gay rights and equality. That is the bottom line and no one will change my views on that issue.
