In 2013 the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Australia made a clear declaration about the church’s teaching on marriage.
We, the Commissioners of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Australia here assembled declare:
Therefore the Assembly:
The 2016 General Assembly also resolved to:
Urge all states assemblies, presbyteries, and congregations to prayerfully and practically support the “No” case in opposing the redefinition of marriage to include homosexual unions in the upcoming 2017 plebiscite.
The Presbyterian Church of Australia is part of the Coalition for Marriage . It consists of more than 80 groups from across Australia, representing over 3 million people and is led by the Australian Christian Lobby, Marriage Alliance, the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney and the Anglican Diocese of Sydney. We encourage all members of the Presbyterian Church (and everyone concerned to preserve the current definition of marriage) to sign up to the coalition. Follow the link above to do that.
