WATCH has a new Chair

handoverWATCH (Women and The Church) is a partner organisation with Inclusive Church and has a place on the Trustee board.
Hilary Cotton has been Chair of WATCH for the past 3 years and during this time has served both WATCH and Inclusive Church with grace and wisdom.

On Saturday 19 November 2016, at the Women and the Church AGM, Hilary Cotton stood down as Chair and WATCH welcomed Emma Percy as the new Chair.
Emma is currently Chaplain, Fellow and Welfare Dean of Trinity College, Oxford and a member of the Faculty of Theology.

She was one of the first generation of women priests in the Church of England, ordained in the spring of 1994. She has served in chaplaincy and parish ministry for over 25 years. Inclusive Church welcomes Emma into this role and looks forward to continue to work closely with WACH in the future. Read Emma’s reflection on St Hilda and taking up the role as Chair of WATCH here:
