Going into this weekend, the diocesan vote was 5 dioceses for Covenant adoption (Lichfield, Durham, Europe, Bristol, and Canterbury) and 6 dioceses against (Truro, Birmingham, Wakefield, St. Edmundsbury & Ipswich, Derby, and Gloucester). The vote is no longer so close.
This weekend, the dioceses of Leicester, Portsmouth, Rochester, and Salisbury and all voted against the Covenant. This makes the current vote of dioceses 5 for the Covenant and 10 against!
More information , including actual vote totals, will eventually appear on the No Anglican Covenant Coalition’s blog and Web site.
