Membership of the Episcopal Teaching Document and Pastoral Advisory Group

Episcopal teaching document

Following the February 2017 Group of Sessions, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York issued a letter on 16th February outlining their proposals for continuing to address, as a church, questions concerning human sexuality.

The Archbishops committed themselves and the House of Bishops to the development of a substantial teaching document on the subject. Further information was provided in a paper from the Archbishops published in June 2017, ‘Next Steps in Human Sexuality’ (GS Misc 1158)

Work towards the production of the episcopal teaching document is being overseen by a Co-Ordinating Group.

Due to the breadth of the task, a number of different Thematic Working Groups (TWGs) are working under the oversight of the Co-ordinating Group on the preparation of the teaching document. Appointments are continuing to be made to the TWGs.
