Norwich Votes for Covenant to Complete Today’s Voting

The final diocese of the Church of England voting today on the Anglican Covenant is the Diocese of Norwich. Norwich voted for the Covenant.

The voting was as follows: Bishops—3 for, 0 against, 0 abstentions; Clergy—26 for, 10 against, 1 abstention; Laity—19 for, 15 against, 1 abstention.

The score today, then, is 3 dioceses voting against the Covenant and 2 for it. The overall vote now is 20 dioceses against and 12 for. An additional 12 dioceses have yet to vote. Modern Church is keeping a complete vote tally here, though, as this is being written, the Norwich results have not yet been posted.
