Christians have always had to live with differences unless severe repression has been in place. In the twentieth century, British Christians took very different views on pacifism and warfare or on divorce. Today they have conflicting views on same sex relationships. With the sudden introduction of legal same-sex marriage, how does the church cope with different views on such a major subject. How does it affect our view of marriage?
As part of a national consultation by the Methodist Church, the Cambridge Circuit is holding two discussion evenings on this topic. The next is at Haslingfield on Monday 1st February. Rev Colin Smith (circuit superintendent minister) and Rev Carole Irwin (Wesley House) will speak and lead the discussion.
There will be time to introduce the themes and encourage conversation to provide useful feedback to input into the national consultation process.
