Chelmsford Synod divided and undecided on upholding Lambeth Resolution 1.10

Against the advice of Canon Theologian Andrew Knowles, the Chelmsford Diocesan Synod decided on Saturday 10th November not to vote on a motion from Braintree Deanery urging the bishops to uphold Lambeth Resolution 1.10.

A procedural motion to move on without voting was passed by 65 votes to 60 on a second count.

The same Synod saw a number of questions put to Bishop John Gladwin about his patronage of the campaign group Changing Attitude, and the effect this was having on the Diocese.
