Church in Wales’ Governing Body debates women bishops

A consultation  conducted earlier this year suggested that a majority of members of the Governing Body (GB) were in favour of women bishops, the Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, said.

“Seventy-nine per cent of lay members and 83 per cent of clerical members indicated either strong or broad support for legislation being brought forward to enable women to be ordained as bishops. The bishops were 100 per cent behind that,” he said.
