The Church of England Newspaper reports:

Members of the General Synod have written an open letter to the College and House of Bishops, urging them ‘not to consider any proposals that fly in the face of the historic understanding of the church’ on human sexuality.

The letter, which is signed by both lay and clergy members of the Synod, says that following the Shared Conversations, a ‘much more biblical study is needed’ before Synod can make informed decisions about human anthropology and sexuality.

The letter, which is published in The Church of England Newspaper today, also welcomes initiatives to help local churches be ‘welcoming to all, irrespective of the pattern of sexual attraction’; in a way that is ‘affirming and consistent with Scripture’.
