Convocations and laity say preliminary yes to women bishops

THE General Synod will debate women bishops on Monday, after the House of Laity and the Convocations of Canterbury and York voted to approve the draft legislation this afternoon.

While the language of the motion before Synod members today was whether or not they approved of the legislation, many speakers indicated they were voting in favour simply to allow a full debate to take place on Monday.
