Congratulations to the 41 Church of Scotland presbyteries for voting and the majority who voted in favour of allowing Ministers / Deacons to perform same-sex marriages! The FINAL count is 30 presbyteries in favour and 11 against/tied. All of the presbyteries have now voted ahead of the 31st of December 2021 deadline.

Since the presbytery votes are in favour, a report will be submitted to the General Assembly for May 2022. It is very encouraging that about 3 quarters of Scotland are in favour of allowing same-sex marriage licensing! However, it will only become Church law in Scotland if the General Assembly agree to the legislation too. You can read more about the process of approving the legislation to allow this over the last four years here via the link below! Thanks again to Affirmation Scotland for helping accumulate the info!
