Inspired for the Future - Eucharist in Celebration of 25 years of Women's Ordination


Inspired for the Future: celebrating 25 years of women’s ordination to the priesthood.

A morning of biblical teaching, theological insight and conversation, with Dr Paula Gooder on 'Phoebe' and Southwark's Lay Canon Theologian Professor Esther Mombo, who will reflect on women's voices from Africa

Together we'll look back and celebrate 25 years of women’s ordained ministry; look forward and think about how we make the most of the gifts women bring to ministry and to the church and look outwards as we ask how can we encourage and support one another in the wider church and wider world? 

For women and men, clergy and laity culminating in a Eucharist where Rt Revd Sarah Mullally DBE will preside, the Venerable Dr Jane Steen will preach and uplifting, joyous music will be provided by Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir.

You can register for either/both the Study Morning and/or Eucharist via the green button.

After Inspired for the Future you might like to go to the Oxo Gallery on the Southbank where the 'Here Am I' exhibition of photographs by Jim Grover documents the stories of 12 female priests from the Diocese of Southwark.
