Christina Rees - biographical details

Christina Rees

Christina Rees, is a well known writer, broadcaster and public speaker. She is also a member of the General Synod of the Church of England.

Christina writes regularly for Day by Day with God, BRF’s Bible reading notes for women, published jointly with Christina Press, and also contributes to the ‘Credo’ column in The Times. She appears in Radio 4’s ‘Thought for the Day’ slot and has also presented ‘Prayer for the Day’, broadcast earlier in the morning.

Christina campaigned for the ordination of women in the Anglican Church and is now the Chairperson of WATCH (Women and the Church). WATCH was started in November 1996 as a forum for promoting women’s ministry in the Church of England, and also to provide a national network and support group for women priests and all who are working for an inclusive church. WATCH also monitors how women are being deployed in the Church, and from time to time commissions theologians to write papers on a range of issues.

Christian has edited a book, “Voices of this Calling” to mark the tenth anniversary of the vote to ordain women as priests in the Church of England. This is a collection of experiences of the first generation of women priests. The Epilogue is by Archbishop Rowan Williams.
