Praying for an Inclusive Church - 17 May 2015
7.30 pm - St Andrews and St George's West Parish Church, George Street, Edinburgh
Since 2007 Affirmation Scotland has held a service during the week of The General Assembly of The Church of Scotland: we've named the service 'Praying for an Inclusive Church.'
This year we are again holding our special service and it could be a significant year in the journey towards the affirmation and inclusion of LGBT people in the Kirk. Around Scotland, Presbyteries have voted to approve the draft legislation that will permit the ordination, induction or appointment of a minister or deacon in a Civil Partnership. The Assembly will be asked endorse this. It is likely that there will also be a discussion about same-sex marriage. None of this will give equality overnight in the Church to those who are in same-relationships - but that day is looking closer than ever.
