Wales’ first bishop in a same-sex civil partnership has said she will not campaign for same-sex marriage in the Church in Wales.
Cherry Vann, who was consecrated as the Bishop of Monmouth on Sunday, said the church still had “a lot of thinking to do” about marriage.
Ms Vann, 60, said she hoped LGBT people would be able to see her appointment as a sign of hope.
She will be enthroned at Newport Cathedral on 1 February.
The Church in Wales does not conduct same sex marriages, but same-sex couples are permitted to be married in places of worship in Wales.
