New bishop of Glasgow & Galloway

The Very Rev Dr Gregor Duncan has been elected bishop of Glasgow & Galloway over two other candidates, including a woman, The Rev Canon Dr Alison Peden. Women have been eligible to become bishops in the Scottish Episcopal Church since 2003. However, Peden was the first to have been shortlisted.

See this report from the UK Press Association.

Meanwhile, progress in making women eligible to be bishops in the Church of England has stalled.
