Wells Archdeacon to serve on House of Bishops
ARCHDEACON of Wells, the Ven Nicola Sullivan, has been elected as one of eight senior women clergy to serve as regional representatives on the Church of England's House of Bishops.
The creation of the regional roles by the House of Bishops allows female participation at the highest level in the Church of England.
The move is in direct response to events of November last year, when General Synod narrowly voted against legislation to allow women to become bishops.
The House of Bishops voted unanimously in favour.
