Unbelievable? 14 May 2011 - Should women be church leaders?

Favourite Share
Saturday 14th May 2011 - 02:30 am

In 1995 the Church of England allowed the ordination of Women priests. But the question of whether the Bible forbids female authority in the church remains.

Christina Rees serves on the Archbishop's Council and the General Synod. She advocates for women in ministry and female Bishops. John Richardson of the conservative Evangelical grouping Reform within the CofE disagrees with female ordination.

They debate Passages in the New Testament that appear to forbid women speaking in Church, the role of husbands and wives and the practical realities of men and women being church leaders.
