Ireland's New Presbyterian Moderator Supports Church's Opposition to Gay Marriage

The PCI has chosen the Reverend William Henry to become its next moderator.

Mr Henry, the minister of Maze Presbyterian Church in County Antrim for the past two decades, was selected following a vote on Tuesday.

At 50 years of age, he is the youngest moderator in living memory.
