Church of England to appoint first 'headship' bishop

From Christian Today-

The Church of England is to appoint its first bishop explicitly chosen because of his conservative evangelical stance against the consecration of women.

The "headship" bishop will fill the suffragan see of Maidstone, which has been vacant since 2009, but will have a national remit.

The decision follows a proposal from the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby to the dioceses commission which met this week.
