Open Letter to Primates – Sep 2017

As a member of the Executive Committee of the General Synod Human Sexuality Group, Jayne signed an Open Letter to all 39 Anglican Primates on Sept 26th 2017, ahead of their meeting from Oct 2nd – 6th 2017 in Canterbury.

A press release references Jayne’s work to gain condemnation of Conversion Therapy, quoting her as follows:

“The medical profession, including the World Health Organisation, is clear that conversion therapy causes stigma and prejudice towards the LGBTI community.  It is critically important that the Church recognises this and takes a lead to condemn it.”

The Letter received coverage from:
