Lampeter meeting to discuss if "the time is right" for women bishops

It is now five years since the last time that Governing Body considered the question of the ordination of women to the episcopate, and many of its members will have changed.

The bishops feel it is important that Governing Body has the opportunity to explore the theological questions behind these issues, and understand the reasons why those opposed to the ordination of women to the episcopate wouldn't be able to accept the sacramental ministry of a woman bishop, as well as the theological reasons why those in favour believe that the time is right for such as a step.

– Gregory Cameron, Bishop of St Asaph
