Over 100 bishops attending the Lambeth Conference have released a statement in support of the LGBT community.
"We wish to support the holiness of their love wherever it is found in committed relationships," the statement reads.
It's after the Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Rev Justin Welby affirmed the validity of Lambeth 1.10, a resolution from 1998 which describes homosexuality as "incompatible with Scripture", while insisting he won't impose sanctions on churches who already bless same-sex marriage.
But for LGBT Anglicans, Lambeth 1.10 "encourages 'conversion therapy' and negates the God-given love between two individuals".
Signatories include, the president of the Episcopal Church in the US, Bishop Michael Curry and Most Rev Andy Johns, Archbishop of Wales.
Various bishops from Canada, Brazil and the Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia have also signed the letter. Two bishops from the Church of England are have also added their name.
Their statement reads: "We recognize that many LGBT+ people have historically been wounded by the Church and particularly hurt by the events of the last few weeks. We wish to affirm the holiness of their love wherever it is found in committed relationships.
"We therefore commit to working with our siblings across the Communion to listen to their stories and understand their contexts, which vary greatly. However, we will never shy away from tackling discrimination and prejudice against those of differing sexualities and gender identities."
Meanwhile, the Global South Fellowship of Anglican Churches (GSFA) have also released a statement encouraging bishops to reaffirm Lambeth 1.10 in full.
The group says it expects over 200 bishops to sign in support.
