Since the General Synod voted not to push ahead with the ordination of women bishops, Linda Pressly asks whether the House of Laity needs reform.
Since the House of Laity in the General Synod voted not to push ahead with the ordination of women bishops there have been calls for reform. Many believe that the House of Laity does not represent the views of the majority of churchgoers and overly represents the evangelical conservative and anglo-catholic perspective. Is that the case or are these calls for reform indicative of a bad case of sour grapes? Linda Pressly investigates what it would take to create common ground between traditionalists and liberals within the Church and, if that is not possible, what the future might hold.
