The Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia has postponed a decision on whether or not to permit the blessing of same sex marriages until 2018. The proposal had been made by the Church’s “Way Forward” group which had been mandated by it’s the 2014 General Synod with coming forward with proposals; but after days of discussion at this year’s Synod, the decision has been delayed.
