Influence with Damian Bradfield


Bishop Rose Hudson-Wilkin on Challenging the Status Quo

Season 3, Ep. 11

When Rose Hudson-Wilkin was first called to church ministry as a child, the Church of England did not allow women to be priests. But being told what she could and couldn’t do didn’t deter her then, and it doesn’t deter her now. On this episode, Bishop Rose speaks to Damian about her journey from growing up in Jamaica to becoming a bishop in the Church of England—the first Black woman allowed the position. She talks about using her role to challenge discrimination, stand up for the vulnerable, and reaffirm the power of community.
