The Church of England’s teaching about marriage and sexual relationships other than marriage currently faces a number of challenges:
- Within British society, attitudes to sexual relationships have changed in recent decades and there are plans to redefine marriage.
- Within the Anglican Communion, some dioceses and provinces are changing their teaching and practice.
- Ecumenically, some of our sister churches, notably among the Porvoo churches, are also revising their doctrine and marriage liturgies.
