From RADIO NEW ZEALAND:
The New Zealand Anglican Church is split by a proposed international policy, which will address the issue of same-sex relationships. This covenant aims to provide the church with an international direction on the issue of same-sex relationships.
Discussions taking place at a general synod of the church in Gisborne on Monday will form part of an international agreement where a number of issues will be addressed, one of which is same-sex relationships. Archibishop David Moxon says the synod is trying to determine whether the proposed covenant will make them become more relevant or more side-lined. He says they are only a third of the way into the discussions, which he expects to continue for another two years.
