How have the members of the groups been chosen?

For the LLF working groups priority was given to finding people with the appropriate subject expertise, while also paying attention to achieving a balance of theological perspectives and representation by LGBTI+ people. In forming the individual groups, it was not always possible to find both – although, across the groups, there is a good balance. Understandably, not all members wish to disclose publicly their personal stories, their identities or even perspectives, so face value conclusions about representation cannot be drawn.

The Co-ordinating Group

This group has responsibility for designing and implementing the overall production of the Living in Love and Faith teaching and learning resources. In addition, the group has been responsible for informing member churches of the Anglican Communion about the project and inviting their reflections on it, and for consulting other churches and other faith communities with a view to learning from their perspectives and informing them of our work.
