What we believe

·         We are committed to the catholic faith as the Church of England received it, and to proclaiming it afresh in this generation.

·         We uphold catholic order and the catholic doctrine of the Sacraments, and in particular the threefold ministry in historic succession, which the Church of England shares with the Church throughout the world and across the ages.

·         We long for the visible unity of Christ’s Church, and especially for communion between the Church of England and the rest of the Western Church.

 

For these reasons, we are unable in conscience to accept the ordination of women as priests and bishops.
