Unitarians Call for Civil Partnerships in Church

21 March 2023

The General Assembly passed a resolution calling for same-sex civil partnerships in church, as a statement of equality and inclusion of same-sex couples.

Derek McAuley, interviewed February 2023:
“In 2008 the Oxford Congregation put forward a motion asking for Civil Partnerships to be performed in places of worship. To put that forward, we were pushing at the boundaries. That [resolution] was passed by the General Assembly at a time when I don’t there was any consideration nationally, within the government, that this was going to happen.”
