(Christian News Network) – The Methodist Church’s Marriage and Relationships Task Group has released a report recommending to allow the celebration of same-sex weddings in its chapels. “As part of its calling and mission, the Methodist Church must engage with the reality of how people are living. That raises questions about the nature of marriage, cohabitation, living in relationships and living with different sexualities,” Ken Howcroft, Chair of the Task Group, said. …

Methodist Evangelicals Together (MET), the largest independent organization in British Methodism today, has responded to the report by calling for the current definition of marriage to be maintained. “Methodist Evangelicals Together continues to be committed to the Wesleyan convictions that the gospel is for all, that the Bible is our supreme rule of faith and practice, and that all Christians are called to holiness,” the group said in a statement.
