What is the position of women in the Church?
The role of women in the Church is very important including direct involvement in the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion) and selection and announcing each hymn at every gathering.
The spiritual influence for good that the women “sisters” provide is highly valued amongst the congregation. In the Bible the moral equivalence of a husband and wife; Prisca and Aquila is very notable.
Why do Brethren ladies wear head scarves?
Scripture enjoins that every woman praying with uncovered head causes herself shame and for this reason Brethren women wear head scarves whilst attending church services.
It is common for Brethren ladies to wear a ribbon or headband when out amongst the general public.
