The Church of England’s governing body is due to vote on whether special services should be held for transgender people.
Supporters of the services say the Church should offer a welcome to people to mark their transition.
The Church’s four-day general synod meeting in York started on Friday.
The Church conducts multiple marriages, christenings, and blessings every day, and now it is being asked to add to its liturgy a service to welcome transgender Christians to their new identity.
Such a service would not be a second baptism, however, as the Church’s teaching is that humans are made in the image of God – transcending gender – and baptism takes place only once.
Supporters say such a welcome would help people undergoing the trauma of transition, or transphobic bullying.
On Saturday, the general synod voted clearly in favour of a motion calling for a ban on so-called conversion therapy for LGBT Christians.
The debate was emotional but the vote conclusive.
Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu said: “As the world listens to us the world needs to hear us say that LGBT orientation and identity is not a crime.
“LGBT orientation and identity is not a sickness. And LGBT orientation and identity is not a sin”
While splits over sexuality remain, liberal Anglicans see the vote as a victory.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has said the Church will spend three years on a document outlining a new stance on sexuality.
Current rules ban the marriage of same-sex couples in church.
Services of blessing for civil partnerships are also prohibited, but informal prayers are allowed.
