WATCH is deeply saddened to hear of the death of one of its longest supporters of gender equality and Hon Vice-Presidents, The Rt Revd Michael Perham.  We have long valued Bishop Michael’s wise counsel, proactive support, and dedication to the Church of England where he worked hard to see opportunities for all to minister regardless of gender at every level within the church.  The church has also benefitted enormously from his legacy of liturgy.  We will miss him greatly.
