The General Synod voted this week — by a narrow margin — to allow stand-alone services of blessing for same-sex couples to go ahead in trial form.
Church Times reporter Francis Martin sat through the marathon debate at Church House, Westminster, and has reported on what went on and the reactions to it. On the podcast this week, he talks to the editor of the Church Times, Paul Handley, about the significance of the vote and what might happen next.
In addition to the reports in this week’s issue, there will be more indepth coverage next week (24 November), when we publish the Synod Digest.
