The Methodist church will celebrate 40 years of women's ordination tomorrow. 

Females could be deacons from 1890 but not presbyters until 1974 and three of the first ones to be ordained will be at the service at London's Wesley's Chapel.

Jennifer Lunn is one of them and she tells Premier women are vital in the church.
