The General Synod of the Church of England: Unconditionally ordain Women as Bishops in the Church of England

The Anglican Episcopacy should be open to women. Synod and the Dioceses of the CofE have agreed this. The vote at Novembers synod has been deeply hurtful to many women, and damaged the Church as a whole.

The next time this issue is voted on it should be as a single clause: The Church of England may consecrate women as Bishops.


As well as a campaigning tool, this petition is a way of gathering together people, especially lay Anglicans, who can organize to elect new and representative Deanery, Diocesan and General synods that will effect this change.

This petition was delivered to:
  • Archbishop of Canterbury
    R.t Rev. Rowan Williams
  • Bishop of Durham
    Rt .Rev. Justin Welby
  • Archbishop of York
    Rt. Rev. John Sentemu
  • Secretary General, General Synod
    William Fittall
