Like poking around in corners?

Can't resist a mystery? Good at photography or making lists? Then the BRIDFAS church recording team would love to hear from you. BRIDFAS is working with us to compile a church record of the Anglican Church of St Thomas Becket, known to many as the Englische Kirche. The project is still in its early stages, but there will soon be plenty of practical help needed, such as compiling records of silver, wall plaques and memorials, and textiles. You don't need to be a BRIDFAS member or part of the church to get involved; everyone's welcome. To find out more, click on the BRIDFAS logo on the right of this page or visit the BRIDFAS website.

Synod says yes to women bishops

The Church of England's General Synod has voted in favour of women bishops. The vote on the measure was carried by the required two-thirds majority in all three houses: Bishops, Clergy and Laity.

You can read how the houses voted, the reactions of Archbishops Justin Welby and John Sentamu and what happens next on the Church of England website.
