Reverend Andy Carley announced he would step down from his role at the Papanui church in November due to the Anglican synod’s decision to allow same-sex marriages to be blessed in Anglican churches. Church member and Papanui-Innes Community Board member John Stringer said 75 per cent of parishioners voted to remain at the church. “Only a small minority will go. Some may even decide to come back,” he said. “Andy is unanimously respected for his position, but it does not mean we all share the need to go. He of course is giving up his career and income out of conscience, so that is a huge act of integrity for him personally. So, there is no split in that sense amongst the congregation, just with the synod decision.” He said the process to find a new vicar to replace Rev Carley would take about a year. •Turn to page 5 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
