The Presbyterian Church in Canada’s Confession to God                                         and LGBTQI People

Adopted on June 6, 2022

 

The 2022 General Assembly adopted a confession to God and LGBTQI people, confessing the harm caused by homophobia, transphobia, heterosexism and hypocrisy in The Presbyterian Church in Canada, and committing the church to a true change of heart and behaviour. The whole church is called to live out this confession as individuals and communities of faith so that harm does not continue.

The link to the video recording of this confession may be found HERE:
