The United Reformed Church (URC) has published the book “Constance – Pioneer, Pastor, Preacher’ on one of the first ordained women in Britain, on behalf of Congregation Federation (CF), the Council for World Mission (CWM) and the Ecumenical Forum of European Christian Women. Besides placing Constance Coltman in the spotlight, it also features men and women pioneers of today.

Rev Lydia Neshangwe, the first woman to serve as CWM Moderator said: “The legacy of her courage is a perpetual challenge to the many churches who are yet to embrace the ordination of women.”

Yvonne Campbell, the first woman to serve as General Secretary of CF added: “My prayer is that as you read this book, you too will be influenced, challenged and inspired by the stories of faith and courage to live out your calling and be true to yourself.”
