Conversation on Marriage

Movers McGowan, A.

The Reverend Dr Andrew McGowan moved, Bishop Garry Weatherill seconded,

That this Synod

acknowledges the conversation continuing in this Church about the celebration of marriage with respect to eligibility of persons who have not been baptised to be married in Anglican churches, and
requests the Liturgy and Doctrine Commissions to consider ways in which they may inform and support that conversation after this Session, such as:
the possibility of a joint meeting focusing on this topic in the next two years;
preparation and publication of a volume of essays;
holding one or more workshops or consultations enabling communication and conversation on key issues of sacramental theology, liturgical practice, and related missiological and pastoral considerations
