Christian Today reports that conservative bishops within the Anglican Church are exploring how best to respond to the church's recent move to allow its clergy to bless same-sex marriages.
The decision to allow blessings was made at the church's general synod earlier in 2023. The decision does not allow priests to perform marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples.
The conservative bishops - referred to as the Global South Fellowship of Anglican Churches, or GSFA - will be meeting in Rwanda in the coming weeks, and it's expected that they could look for ways to break away from the current leadership of the Anglican Church.
The GSFA represents bishops from Africa, Asia, and Latin America - geography that includes the majority of the Anglican church's 85 million strong congregation.
