Could 2014 be the year for Women Bishops? photo

96.4 THE EAGLE asked Dianna Gwilliams, Dean of Guildford about the possibility of Women Bishops in 2014.

She said: "In my mind if we are invited by God in Christ to belong to God, then that invitation is without qualification.

"It's evolution and not revolution that happens in the Church of England.

“Wanting to demonstrate something of respect for one another has enabled, I think it seems to me, The General Synod to listen to one another."

Dianna Gwilliams spoke to the radio station on Thursday 2nd January ahead of the vote in February.
