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, BRFs Bible reading notes for women, published jointly with Christina Press, and also contributes to the Credo column in The Times. She appears in Radio 4s 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 womens 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.

Our emblem - based on a 14th century illustration - shows Sophia, "Wisdom", in action. She was known to have been God's designer who danced at creation (Proverbs 8,12-31). In the image she is teaching geometry to medieval scholars.
We chose this for our emblem because it shows both respect for exact science and a recognition that the Spirit of God is at the root of all human research.
