MOVEMENT FOR THE ORDINATION OF WOMEN

Lesley McLean

President

I have wobbled my way through an adventurous life of marriage, motherhood, church attendance. As I grew older I was ready to answer the prods and nudges to explore my faith and to study. The adventure took serious turns, ordination, more study, ministry, widowhood and more ministry and study. I was involved at the very beginning of discussion on the Ordination of Women in Adelaide in 1980, attended the first National Conference in Sydney in 1985 and since retirement in 2010 was Vice -President for Susan Sandford and now President since 2018.

My love of the church, my Christian commitment and my desire to share the history of the movement towards women’s ordination in Adelaide to a wider audience is my abiding passion. Welcome to the Website.
