‘Gender-Neutral God’ Considered By Church Of England

  • God could be referred to in ‘non-gendered’ terms during Church of England services for the first time, it can be revealed.
  • Breaking with centuries of tradition, bishops have announced they are launching a major ‘project on gendered language’ this spring.
  • It may suggest that priests can stop using the male pronouns ‘He’ and ‘Him’ when referring to God in some prayers, or even that they can drop the famous phrase ‘our Father’ from the start of the Lord’s Prayer.
