‘We were all made equal’

Jackie Macadam hears from women who will take part in a conference celebrating their contribution to the world church this month.

WOMEN IN THE WORLD CHURCH

THE contribution of women to churches across the world will be celebrated at a conference in Edinburgh this month.

The ‘Women in the World Church’ conference will bring together ordained and lay women from Church of Scotland partner churches across the world, including Nigeria, Lebanon, Pakistan, Egypt and Jamaica.

The conference comes as the Church of Scotland nears the 50th anniversary of the decision to ordain women ministers, and follows its World Mission Council’s focus on women in the world church at this year’s General Assembly.

Between September 14 - 18, the women will participate in a conference for World Mission Presbytery Conveners, a Round Table meeting where the overseas delegates and Scottish women will share experiences in a day conference jointly organised with the Centre for World Christianity at the University of Edinburgh.
