Same sex marriage

The Legal Questions Committee of The Church of Scotland responded to the Scottish Government’s document, 'The Registration of Civil Partnerships, Same Sex Marriage' on 1 December 2011.

At the same time, the Church issued a press release, summarising its response. Shortly afterwards, the Convener of the Legal Questions Committee, the Rev Alan Hamilton, issued a further statement to emphasise some of the points made in the response.

For convenience, all these documents, plus any further supporting material the Church produces, can be found on this page.
