Church in Wales votes for women bishops: Anglican Ink, September 12, 2013 September 12, 2013Posted by geoconger in Anglican Ink, Church in Wales, Women Priests.
The Governing Body of the Church in Wales has adopted a Bill to allow women clergy to be ordained to the episcopate.
Meeting on 12 Sept 2013 at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David in Lampeter the Governing Body amended the original Bill put forward by the House of Bishops to adopt a staged introduction of women bishops so that an adequate provision for opponents of women bishops might be codified.
However, the Archdeacon of Llandaff, the Ven. Peggy Jackson and the Rev. Canon Jenny Wigley put forward an amendment that would allow the ordination of women to the episcopate without waiting for a code of practice to be adopted.
