Church of England and race

May 4, 2021 by

Just before Easter, we received media notification that the Church of England was about to release a report from an anti-racism taskforce, which would identify examples of extensive racism within the church, and outline potential solutions such as quotas for numbers of BAME clergy and senior leaders.


Trailing the report’s release was a BBC Panorama programme, reviewed here:
