"Very grim day" for Church of England

The Bishop of Durham, and future Archbishop of Canterbury, has expressed his disappointment at the failure of the General Synod to pass legislation that would introduce women bishops into the church.


Very grim day, most of all for women priests and supporters, need to surround all with prayer & love and co-operate with our healing God.


Church: 'No women bishops'

The Bishop of Durham, Justin Welby, says the vote against women bishops marked a 'sad day'.
