JOHANNESBURG - Eleven members of the Dutch Reformed Church are taking the church to court.
The applicants are unhappy about the church’s move to reverse its decision on same-sex unions.
The landmark decision was made in 2015 when the church gave its blessing to same-sex relationships.
But a year later it backtracked, saying these relationships do not meet Christian guidelines.
Same-sex marriage has been legal in South Africa since the Civil Union Act came into force in 2006.
