Rose Hudson-Wilkin: Who is my neighbour?

In this webinar conversation in the Questions of our Times series, Rose Hudson-Wilkin MBE, now Bishop of Dover, and formerly Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons, talks about discrimination, immigration and faith, in response to the question: Who is my neighbour?

Born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Rose Hudson-Wilkin has known a life of firsts. In 1994, she was one of the first women to be ordained as an Anglican priest. She spent many years working in inner-city parishes in the West Midlands and in London. In 2007, she became the first black woman to be appointed as a Chaplain to the Queen. Three years later, she was the first woman to become the Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons. In 2019, she became the Church of England’s first black woman bishop.

She took part in the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, and in the coronation service of King Charles and Queen Camilla.
