Four dioceses in the Church of England voted on the proposed Anglican Covenant today. All four voted against it. To date, ten of the church’s 44 dioceses have voted against the covenant, which is supported by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, while five have voted in favor of the covenant.
Voting in the negative today were the dioceses of Leicester, Portsmouth, Rochester and Salisbury.
Eighteen of the remaining 29 dioceses will need to vote in favor of the proposed covenant if it is to be returned for a vote at the church’s General Syond.
UPDATED: Thinking Anglicans has the vote totals (for the dioceses that have published that information). What’s interesting is that it’s being defeated uniformly in the clergy order.
