Resolution 22 - Women in the Episcopate

Resolution 22

Women in the Episcopate

While recognising that a member Church of the Anglican Communion may wish to consecrate a women to the episcopate, and accepting that such member Church must act in accordance with its own constitution, the Conference recommends that no decision to consecrate be taken without consultation with the episcopate through the primates and overwhelming support in any member Church and in the diocese concerned, lest the bishop's office should become a cause of disunity instead of a focus of unity.
