WATCH is pleased that the House of Bishops’ preferred option received overwhelming support from General Synod, which today re-affirmed its commitment to admitting women to the episcopate as a matter of urgency.  The positive experience of the facilitated conversations was reflected in the tone of the debates.  WATCH remains committed to full engagement with the ongoing process.


Vice-Chair, Charles Read commented, “This is an encouraging start to a process that will enable women to be bishops on equal terms as men.”
