Unfinished Business: Celebrating Anglican Women’s Ministry in Australia


to be held at Christ Church St Laurence, 812 George Street, Sydney, 16-18 September 2022


Thirty years after the Anglican Church in Australia ordained women priests, MOW is organising a conference that will honour those who fought for women’s ordination over many years and celebrate the courage and service of ordained women, be they deacons, priests, bishops or archbishops.


The conference will also challenge those Australian dioceses that, even now, are limiting or refusing to acknowledge women’s ordained ministry.


Speakers who will be addressing the past, present and future of women’s ordained ministry include Dr Julia Baird and Keith Mason AC, QC, Professor Eileen Baldry AO, the Rev’d Val Graydon, the Rev’d Dr Lesley McLean, Dr Gwenneth Roberts, the Rev’d Gloria Shipp, the Rev’d Elisa Waterhouse CSC, the Rev’d Canon Mara Di Francesco, Dr Jacqueline Service, Anne Hywood, the Rev’d Angela Peverell, and the Rev’d Canon Professor Dorothy Lee.


Further details, including the conference program and registration details, will be posted on this site in due course.
