About time some may say. women have been running some churches for years. they would have closed otherwise. Not enough male Vicars you see.

We had a female vicar in a church near us some time back, don't know why but she didn't stop long.

Even when the Vicar is a bloke the church is still kept going by the ladies.

I don't know about female bishops but don't they need bigger congregations first?

If people don't wake up some Churches will cease to exist. Same story as pubs, if you don't use em you lose em.
There is a big initiative being pushed at present. Growing younger. It's to attract more younger people. Not only are congregations shrinking in some places. The average age is growing older too.
