In 2015, the General Assembly resolved that the church (congregations, sessions, presbyteries, synods and denominational committees) be encouraged to engage in a year of prayerful conversation, discernment and Bible study on the topics of human sexuality, sexual orientation and other related matters raised in the overtures. Body, Mind and Soul – Study Guide on Human Sexuality was produced to help assist the church in this regard.

As part of the Life and Mission Agency’s responsibility to support and help equip congregations and presbyteries, the Agency will make available a number of resources in the months ahead, including offering each presbytery access to a one-time grant of up to $1000 from the Conference Support Fund to support presbytery-sponsored educational initiatives that encourage people and courts to study, reflect on and discuss issues related to sexual orientation and the church.

Please read and circulate the enclosed letter to Presbytery clerks with further details and access to the application form.
