Same-sex Church in Wales marriage hope within five years

Apr 30, 2022 by

from BBC News:

Same-sex weddings could be held in churches in Wales in five years, the incoming archbishop has said.

Andrew John has said the church should be inclusive and “welcome people, where they are, who they are”.

Last year, the Church in Wales passed legislation meaning couples could have their civil partnership blessed.

It was carried by a two-thirds majority, to be used experimentally for five years, but individual clergy will decide whether to bless partnerships.

The incoming archbishop said he was “enormously heartened by that vote”.

“Although it wasn’t unanimous – it showed the Church in Wales has a common mind on this,” he said.
