Same-sex marriage at Central

A few weeks ago the main intention of the church council meeting at Central was to engage in further conversation about the Methodist Church Marriage and Relationships report and to make decisions regarding same-sex marriages taking place at the church.

We are delighted that the church council voted unanimously both in favour of giving consent for the solemnization of marriages of same-sex couples, and to apply to register the building accordingly, and in favour of giving consent for the blessing of marriages of same-sex couples previously solemnized. The full resolutions are available in the church council minutes.

Please feel free to get in touch with our Minister David Bidnell if there are matters arising from this that you would like to talk through.
