Jan Malpas

Jan retired from the MOW Board at the 2020 AGM.

Here is what she wrote about her involvement in the church and MOW.

 

Jan has spent her married life in the Anglo-Catholic diocese of The Murray where she has been a vocal advocate for the advancement of women in all positions within the church. Jan has always believed that women should take an equal place in the society, sacred and secular. She has heard no satisfactory argument to the contrary.

Jan has a Social Science Degree, been a Lifeline counsellor for 9 years and on its local Board for the south-east of South Australia for 3 years. She was national President of Mothers’ Union and involved with the National Council of Churches. Both these roles gave her international experience of the wider church in action.

She believes in equality in marriage, contrary to complementarianism and that traditions should not stand in the way of the progress of Love. As a member of the Movementfor the Ordination of Women Jan has observed that people’s experience of women’s ministry is usually a conversion experience.
