Rod Thomas - smallRod Thomas was consecrated the Bishop of Maidstone in October 2015 to have a national role in encouraging and helping local churches whose understanding of the Bible leads them to conclude that men and women should have complementarian, rather than identical, ministries in the Church.

Rod was chairman of Reform up to 2015 and he remains part of the Reform Council.

Rod has his own web site which explains more about his role in relation to the House of Bishops Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops and Priests. Reform members can find practical guidance for PCCs wishing to pass a declaration.
