Anglican LGBTI groups are calling for the Church of England to follow the example set by the Methodist Church in its acceptance of same-sex marriage.

All the major LGBTI organisations in the Church of England have welcomed the Methodist Church’s move towards same-sex marriage, following a motion at The Methodist Conference earlier this month, which saw a 247 to 48 vote in favour of allowing same-sex weddings to take place in Methodist Churches and to be conducted by Methodist ministers.

The Campaign for Equal Marriage in the Church of England, Inclusive Church, OneBodyOneFaith, the LGBTI Mission, Ekklesia, Accepting Evangelicals and others have written a letter calling on the Church of England to make a similar move of acceptance.
