‘Am I Worthy of This Calling?’

“You can’t help but ask yourself, ‘Why me?'” the Reverend Sharon Francis says at the start of this short film. At a time when the presence of women in leadership roles within the Church of England remains controversial, Francis’s testimony is quietly revolutionary. In this documentary by Jessica Bishopp, we get a snapshot of her internal struggle before making the decision to enter religious life.
