Please see the notice regarding a Public Consultation for the next Bishop of London.
It is important that as many of us as possible attend this meeting.
We need to give our clear views on what should be included in the profile for the next bishop, whose remit, beliefs and actions will go far beyond the diocese to the wider national and international stage.
Many of you wrote to the Vacancy in See Committee regarding the importance of the next bishop ordaining women as priests alongside men, and why. It is vital that the Archbishop’s secretary for Appointments and the Prime Minister’s Appointments Secretary also hear these views.
Whether or not you are able to attend please write to the two Secretaries on the email address given below stating what you feel. If you have a name as bishop to propose then please include this in your email. But, please, try to come in person. It will be so good to see you as WATCH (London) members.
With many good wishes
Sally Barnes on behalf of the WATCH (London) Committee
