A church in Brighton has named a transgender man who identifies as neither exclusively male nor female as its new associate pastor.

Rev Peta Evans, who described themselves as non-binary, is due to give their first sermon at the Village Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) in the Portslade area of the city next Sunday evening.

Rev Evans said: “Returning to Brighton, I am excited to serve again in the community which first welcomed me and supported me in both my ministry journey and my gender transition.”

“Born of the LGBTQ community to empower and serve the LGBTQ community”, the Village MCC is led by senior pastor Rev Michael Hydes.

Rev Evans went on to say: “I would love to see the sincere passion and integrity of The Village MCC reach out even more widely to people of all ages, gender identities and walks of life.”
