The Church of England's ruling General Synod begins a meeting in York today that could see it take the historic decision to allow women bishops, breaking a tradition the Church traces back to the time of Jesus.
The Reverend Rosie Harper, chaplain to the Speaker in the Commons, believes that "people are taking us less and less seriously... they are thinking the Church is out of touch."
Father David Holding, on the other hand, thinks the Church has "to stick to the traditional line in order to be quite sure that when we celebrate Holy Communion the bread and wine become the body and blood of Jesus."
