SUNDAY 21st OCTOBER at 10:30am
A Congregational Meeting was held on Sunday 21st October following the 9:30am Church service.
The meeting addressed a recommendation of the Church Council with respect to same gender marriage.
Two options are open to Uniting Church congregations and separately to ministers. Rev Scott Finlay gave an excellent presentation with regards to understanding the biblical context of same gender relationships.
The Church Council made the recommendation that we allow same gender marriages to be conducted at our church, with God’s blessing. There was overall concensus of the proposal. Our Minister Rev. Scott Finlay had previously said that he would be happy to conduct same gender marriages whether it be in the church or elsewhere.
