Jamaican woman likely to become England’s first female bishop! (Video)

first female bishop of EnglandA Jamaican born reverend by the name of Rose Hudson-Wilkin has been tipped to become England’s first female bishop.

She was born in Montego Bay Jamaica and currently serves as  Speaker’s chaplain to the House of Commons, priest vicar at Westminster Abbey and chaplain to the Queen.

In a recent interview with The Telegraph at her church in Haggerston East London, the  reverend was asked her opinion on whether she believes women will get the votes to finally be allowed to become bishops in the Church of England.

The Church of England’s General Synod is scheduled to hold a vote on Monday which could potentially pave the  way for the naming of the the first female bishops by the end of this year.

  

The seemingly elated reverend responded by stating that she truly believes in miracles and also said that if women are allowed to become bishops the church would be truly reflecting the people of God and what it means to be the body of Christ, male and female in leadership.

The Church of England is the “mother church” for the global Anglican Communion, which includes approximately 80 million people in over 165 countries worldwide.
