Join us for a conversation with the Bishop of Maidstone.
Rod Thomas was appointed in 2015 to offer Episcopal oversight to those churches who in conscience cannot accept the ministry of female Bishops on Biblical grounds. The Dioceses Commission understood the need for there to be a Bishop who could articulate the views of conservative evangelicals who took a ‘complementary’ view of men’s and women’s ministry from a standpoint of personal conviction. As a result, the Bishop of Maidstone not only has a place in the College of Bishops, but is also invited to participate (but not vote) in meetings of the House of Bishops.
Rod joins us for this event, which is open to all churches across the Diocese, to spell out the current situation in the Church of England as he sees it and to give us some idea of the future direction of the denomination. It promises to be a fascinating and very helpful time. Tea and cake will be served and there will be plenty of chance to ask questions.
