MAECymru rejoices that the Church in Wales has received two women as bishops during 2017, and in the light of this:-
(i) calls on the Bench of Bishops to reconsider the appropriateness of continuing to accept for ordination those who will, in conscience, refuse to accept the sacramental ministry of women;
(ii) requests all the bishops to renew their previous undertakings not to hold separate ordination services for any candidates on gender-related grounds.
Following the conclusion of the business meeting Ms Norma Jarboe OBE, founder and director of Women Count * gave the keynote address.
