The Marriage and Relationships Task Group presented a report to the 2019 Conference with recommendations about various issues to do with relationships in general and marriage in particular. Those recommendations will be submitted to the wider Church for consultation during 2019-2020, with a final decision being made at the July 2020 Conference.

We will be recommending that every church council should discuss these matters and will be creating further opportunities for conversation around the Circuit. In the meantime, the Connexion is offering resources for download and I commend them to you. These are important and sensitive matters and I am sure that we will conduct these conversations with grace and generosity.
