This year Presbyterian and Cooperating churches, and Presbyteries, in New Zealand are given the opportunity to vote on the motion passed ad interim at the last General Assembly i.e. that ministers of the PCANZ may officiate only at the marriage of a man and a woman. Under our processes, that decision needs to be ratified at the next General Assembly and that ratification depends on the voting of churches and presbyteries.
Presbyterian AFFIRM urges all churches to submit their vote, supporting the Assembly decision.
