The latest two Diocesan Synod results come from Blackburn and Southwell and Nottingham. Blackburn diocesan Synod passed the legislation for women in the Episcopacy by much greater majorities this time. Where last time it passed, but only by majorities of 2 and 3 in the houses of clergy and laity, this time the majorities were 16 and 36. Southwell and Nottingham diocese also passed the Women in The Episcopacy legislation by large majorities – only 3 votes against in the whole Synod. Now 27 of the 43 dioceses who will vote have voted (Europe are not able to meet in the time-scale) and all are in favour.
