Dr Pauline Webb

We were very sad to learn of the death of our friend Pauline Webb.

Pauline Webb

Pauline was a campaigner, journalist and broadcaster and missionary publicist and pioneer for women’s ministry and women’s ordination.

She was the first woman to be elected an officer of the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches where, as Vice-Moderator (1968-1975),  she played a leading role in its programme to combat racism and was thrown out of South Africa* for her outspoken views.

She was organiser of Religious Broadcasting for the BBC World Service, 1979-1987, as well as a regular contributor to Pause for Thought, Radio 2 and Thought for the Day on Radio 4.
