NEW ZEALAND: Anglican Church leaders told they've had long enough on same sex issues

Pressure is being put on Anglican Church leaders to accept same-sex blessings and ordinations.

The church's General Synod has begun its two-yearly gathering, and will discuss same-sex issues tomorrow.

Ten possible directions for the future will be discussed...including the prospect of a complete splintering if the church can't agree.

The new vicar at St Matthew-in-the-City, Helen Jacobi, believes church leaders have had long enough to think.

"I desperately hope they won't take that option because we have discussed and had a lot of in-depth research and meetings and reflections and discussions for years and years now. It is absolutely time to move forward."
