Revd Nelva Moss 5th June 7.30pm

Celebrating Women’s Priestly Ministry

Twenty five years ago this year the General Synod of the Church of England voted to allow the ordination of women to the priesthood. This decision changed the nature of the Church of England fundamentally by releasing the gifts and ministry of women within the priesthood of all believers.

In 1989 Nelva was a stay-at-home mum anticipating a return to teaching. In 1990 she began training for ordination. Why and how did this happen? How was female ministry first greeted and experienced, by women and within the parishes? Did gender matter at all, and if so, in what way? And how does it seem now, as she looks back from the (relative) peace and calm of retirement?
