Susie Leafe, a prominent evangelical within the Church of England, has quit her role as director of the conservative campaign group Reform.

Chairman of Reform Mark Burkill told members in a message on Thursday it was ‘with deep regret’ that he announced Leafe’s decision to resign.

Susie Leafe has been a prolific campaigner within the Church’s hierarchy and has spoken consistently against women bishops and against same-sex marriage since her appointment as director in 2013.

In her letter of resignation she said: ‘For the past six years it has been a joy to serve alongside faithful brothers and sisters, providing information and proclaiming the gospel.’

Christian Today approached Leafe as to why she resigned but she declined to comment.

Other members of the Reform Council, who lead the conservative pressure group within the Church, have also declined to comment on the reasons behind her resignation.
