Church of England General Synod Vote on Women Bishops

The Church Council of the parish of All Saints, St Mary and St Peter, Nottingham, wishes to make known its profound sadness in relation to the rejection of the draft legislation which would have enabled women to become bishops in the Church of England. Considerable efforts have been made to provide for those who oppose this change, and it is iniquitous that the persistence of blocking tactics should prevail over the wishes of the huge majority of members of the General Synod as a whole who are in favour of the proposals.

The Church Council deplores the inability of the Church of England to legislate for something whose theological rationale is overwhelming, and presses for a successful outcome to this impasse to be achieved at the earliest opportunity.

The parish of All Saints, St Mary and St Peter, which covers much of the city centre of Nottingham, has for many years campaigned for a Church of England which is inclusive in the fullest sense. It has been served by women priests since the earliest days of women's ordination.
