Thank you for signing WATCH’s petition. The speed at which numbers have grown, and the strength of feeling expressed so eloquently in people’s comments have been a wonderful encouragement to those who have been fighting for so long to see women able to become bishops on the same terms as men.
Before Synod begins, we will present each bishop with a briefing that tells them just how many people have signed in less than a week, and includes a selection of the thousand or so comments made.
Now we need your prayers that the bishops and all those who will be taking part in General Synod will hear the voices of the many thousands who are quietly despairing of the national church. The crucial debate takes place on Monday.
