Statement on the election of Andrew Cain to General Synod 

Andrea Williams, chief executive of Christian Concern and a member of the Church of England's General Synod 2010 - 2015, has issued the following statement in response to the election of Rev'd Andrew Cain to the General Synod.

"Last year, Andrew Cain ignored biblical teaching and the clear instruction of the House of Bishops and entered into a same-sex 'marriage'.

“Andrew Cain’s ongoing activism should no longer be tolerated. His actions are designed to undermine the Church and her teaching on marriage. His election to General Synod cannot be allowed to stand and he should be swiftly removed from church leadership.”
