Unheard Voices describes the experience at St Luke’s Church, Charlton, of twenty years of providing a service of blessing for same-sex couples and the theological reflection that took place within the congregation on this ministry.
The story begins in 1979 with the request by two men who had lived together for nineteen years to have their relationship blessed in church. They subsequently became prominent members of the church community. Since then forty-five same-sex couples have sought and received a blessing. It is both their voices and the voices of other members of the congregation of St Luke’s, most of whom support the blessings, some who do not, who are the unheard voices of the title of the book.
