Methodist publication Touchstone reports that Mornington Church, part of Dunedin Methodist Parish, has opted to open its doors to same-sex marriages.
“Mornington has always been an inclusive church,” parishioner Colin Gibson says. “We would be more than happy for our ministers to conduct a same-sex marriage here. We think that is the logical situation. We have always supported gay rights, so we feel it is a perfectly normal extension of this now that it’s legal within the state.”
