Marriage and Relationships

Following prayerful consideration by the whole Church, in June 2021 the Methodist Conference voted to confirm provisional resolutions on the principles or qualities of good relating, understanding of cohabitation and same sex marriages conducted on Methodist premises or by Methodist office-holders.

Update 20 September 2021. All guidance is now available for Methodist Church Councils to consider the question of same-sex marriage and apply to register their buildings if desired. You can find these resources on the Guidance and Resources page below.
