Church Society: Consecrating Women as Bishops in the Church of England

1. The nature and role of episcopacy (Bishops)

It is argued that Bishops as they exist in the Church of England today are simply Presbyters (priests) who are set aside  (consecrated) for a wider areas of ministry.

2. Should women be Bishops?

Since it is argued that Bishops are Presbyters with a wider area of ministry the theological question is essentially should women should be presbyters (priests).

3. Issues arising from the nature of episcopacy.

Because Bishops have wider areas of ministry the consecration of women Bishops raises particular practical issues.

4. The Rochester Commission

The Commission was set up to look into the issues and make recommendations.

Three submissions printed in Churchman 116/1 (2002)

5. Synodical processs

What motions have been passed by General Synod on this issue.

6. Provision for Opponents

Dr Jensen is an Anglican.

Unfortunately the Church in Australia just erected to its head the socialist bishop of Bribane who immediately upon his elevation became an ignorant and outspoken advocate of and for Australia's failed and pathetic Labour Party.
