Lesbian Priests Will Lead Church Service On Eve Of Anglican Summit

On the eve of the Lambeth Conference, LGBT+ campaigners will hold a church service and two married lesbian priests will host the service.

The Lambeth conference is a once-in-a-decade assembly of Anglican bishops and it is expected to be filled with conflicts over sexuality and marriage, as ‘The Guardian’ reports. 


In the last Lambeth conference in 2008, leading Rowan Williams, there were strong conflicts over sexuality between those who preach the “biblical truth” and those seeking acceptance and inclusivity.

Glasspool, the first married lesbian bishop in the global Anglican church, said the inclusive service would carry an important message. “The LGBT+ community in the UK and other places might not understand that they are invited to celebrate at the Christian table. We need to make it known that everyone is included – all are invited to this particular celebration.”
