Graeme Pringle 05/06/15 Guidance  PCC resolutions relating to women bishops and priests

As a result of decisions taken by General Synod in November, provision has been made for those who, on grounds of theological conviction, are unable to receive the ministry of women bishops or priests.

This provision, in the House of Bishops’ Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops and Priests, replaces the arrangements put in place more than twenty years ago when women were first ordained as priests (Resolutions A, B and C).

The Church of England has now issued some guidance notes for PCC members (see attached).

It’s not the easiest document to understand! Please contact Simon Lloyd or Archdeacon John if you need help interpretting it.
