Full inclusion of women in the church – what were they thinking?

_1TT0161

As we mark the 50th Anniversary of the decision in favour of full inclusion of women in the church, we’ll reflect on the church’s early conversations around the issue, asking: what were they thinking, how did the church address the issues and concerns raised, and how does this shape us as we move forward as a church and the things we struggle with today?

Participate in conversation together at tables and enjoy opportunity for reflection as we remember our shared history and share our stories.

The workshop will be led by

The Reverend Linda Ashfield (B.A., M.Div.)

Knox Presbyterian Church, Waterloo
