95 churches want to register civil partnerships

A limited survey by the Coalition has already revealed that almost 100 Church of England churches would want to explore registering their buildings to offer Civil Partnerships – if the Church of England would allow it.

This comes as registration forms for religious buildings become available for the first time this month following the end of the Government ban in December.
The news that so many Anglican Churches would want to explore registration shows the disparity between the official stance of the Church of England and that of ordinary parishes.
