Women Bishops?

Church Society reiterates Biblical and traditional position.

The recent Annual General Meeting of Church Society reiterated the traditional mainstream evangelical position in relation to ordained ministry within the Church.  The following motion was passed unanimously.

This meeting resolves that:
1)     the Scriptures teach that the office of presbyter (priest) should be occupied by men  alone;
2)     the 1992 legislation to allow the ordination of women as Priests was therefore contrary to Scripture, it fractured the Church and caused many loyal Anglicans to leave;

3)     a decision to consecrate women as Bishops will compound this problem;
4)     Church Society will continue to oppose legislation to permit the consecration of Women Bishops and seek to reform the Church under the Word of God.
