Same-sex Marriage in Church

An Equal Campaign Action

Thank you for visiting this section of the website of the Equal Campaign (see below if you don’t know about the Campaign).

Here you can find out about our current Campaign Action: for Church of England clergy to add their names to a secure, confidential list of those who would be willing to solemnize the marriage of same-sex couples in church, when it becomes possible to do so within the laws of England and its established Church.

To find out more, please go to Would you marry a same-sex couple in church?. (Yes, we know it’s not strictly correct to say the priest marries the couple.)

Equal, the Campaign for Equal Marriage in the Church of England, is campaigning for a change in the teaching and practice of the Church of England to allow all couples to marry in church, regardless of their gender, sex or sexuality. To find out more, please go to our main website at
