The Methodist Church is currently seeking advice from all the churches throughout the Connexion as to whether the Church should restart a discussion about marriage & relationships especially in the light of the legalisation of ‘gay’ marriage by Parliament some time ago. No change of policy in the Methodist Church is allowed without consultation and a decision of the Methodist Conference which currently prohibits Methodist Churches and Methodist Clergy being involved in ‘gay’ marriage ceremonies.
So as to ensure our voice can be heard, the Circuit leadership has asked a team from the Darlington District Marriage & Relationships Roadshow to come to our Circuit for one evening.
This has been arranged for Tuesday 19th January, starting at 7.00pm at Marske Methodist Church (Hummershill Lane, Marske, TS11 7DH).
You are invited, indeed are encouraged, to take this opportunity to learn more about the issues we face in this area, and to have your voice heard on this important issue.
