The Church of England has apologised for saying sex is only for “heterosexual married couples”.
“We are very sorry and recognise the division and hurt this has caused,” the archbishops of Canterbury and York said.
Jade Irwin, an LGBT Christian, felt “really disheartened and deflated” after the guidance issued by the Church of England last week.
But she says the apology is a “positive step”.
“I’m pleased that they’ve reflected and issued this statement,” Jade, who’s from LGBT charity Diverse Church, tells Radio 1 Newsbeat.
The Church of England guidance said sex in gay or straight civil partnerships “falls short of God’s purpose for human beings”.
It came out after the law changed to allow straight couples to have a civil ceremony.
It added that Christians can only have sex if they’re married, which it called the “life-long union between a man and a woman”.
Now the archbishops say the statement “jeopardised trust”.
The Church has been divided over how to deal with LGBT issues for decades and is in the middle of a large study of human sexuality, Living in Love and Faith, which is due to be published later this year.
