‘…the Rt Revd John Packer, said that weddings were at the heart of the Church’s pastoral ministry. The legislation, he said, should extend to benefices held in plurality, and give the right to be married in an adjacent parish when the church in one’s own parish was being repaired.’
What a shame that same sex partnerships are excluded from this wonderful ‘heart’.
