The General Synod voted in favour of the move yesterday after almost five hours of debate.
– Rt Rev James Newcome, The Bishop of Carlisle
“Much prayer and careful consideration has gone into this process. We recognise that at times this has been a painful process for those in favour and those against the creation of women bishops.
“Our priority is growing disciples in Christ and we hope that this decision will help the mission of the church.
“Finally, I would reiterate my personal delight that our excellent women clergy now have parity with their male colleagues and that as we move forward, following this vote, we will continue to be guided by God in all we do.”
Thirty-seven bishops voted in favour with two against and one abstention, while 162 clergy approved with 25 against and four abstentions.
