Rector of Darlington-Bellevue Anglican parish, the Reverend Chris Bedding, presented the motion to the synod.
“We presented a motion saying that the Anglican Church and the Diocese of Perth would like to acknowledge that legal recognition of same-sex relations can coexist with legal recognition of marriage between a man and a woman,” he said.
