A woman bishop has become the first in the Church of England to lead an ordination service.
Four clergy will be ordained by Rev Dame Sarah Mullally in Devon this weekend.
They have spent a year as deacons but once ordained they will be able to perform weddings and lead Holy Communion services.
Dame Sarah said it was “another step towards making women bishops a normal part of the Church of England”.
