The Church of England in collaboration with Stonewall, a gay rights group, will tackle homophobic bullying in Church schools, according to the BBC.
The latter said that although the two sides have disagreed about much over the years they are both on the same side on this issue.
The plans were discussed during the C of E's three-day general synod, held at Church House, Westminster.
The Bishop of Oxford, the Right Reverend John Pritchard, revealed the collaboration on Monday afternoon, in answer to a question from members of the synod.
Stonewall senior education officer Luke Tyrl told BBC: "We've had some interesting initial discussions to try to replicate what some C of E schools are doing, across all Church schools."
Tyrl said the charity had not always agreed with the Church on "legislative issues" - the Church has opposed both the introduction of civil partnerships and same-sex marriage.
He added: "We're aware that the Archbishop may be under pressure from other quarters in the Church not to do this."
Addressing the synod's meeting at the University of York in July, the archbishop said: "The majority of the population rightly detests homophobic behaviour or anything that looks like it and sometimes they look at us and see what they don't like.
"With nearly a million children educated in our schools, we not only must demonstrate a profound commitment to stamp out such stereotyping and bullying, but we must also take action.
"We are therefore developing a programme for use in our schools, taking the best advice we can find anywhere, that specifically targets such bullying."
