Overview

The Bible tells us Jesus is for every tribe, language, people and nation – so why are all the saints in our stained-glass windows white?

An oppressive bias has taken hold of the storytelling of the Church. Many are surprised to discover that St. Augustine was from present day Algeria, and even that most British of saints, George, was an immigrant with a Turkish father and a Palestinian mother.

Every Tribe celebrates the true diversity of the saints, inspiring the church to become what it is meant to be: the rainbow people of God serving the diverse needs of a diverse world.
