Same Sex Marriage

Since the Government introduced the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act in 2013, we have been listening to each other in order to discern our response as Baptists Together.
Our Baptist Union Council has met to engage in this discernment through a time of intense prayer, listening and discussion.  Many of you will have contributed to that process through our ‘talkingtogether’ email address.

Council Statement

At the March 2016 Council it was clearly discerned that we should offer to our Union, in humility, the statement that is set out here. This was sent out to all churches and ministers with an accompanying letter.  An update was also given to the May 2016 Baptist Assembly.

Mission. Marriage. Update from our Core Leadership Team - June 2022

Our Baptists Together Core Leadership Team (CLT) met in person in June 2022 and Lynn wrote to all ministers and churches directly to share the key themes covered. Click here for the content of her letter.
