Racial equality

27/05/2022

We fully sympathise with concerns over racism within the Church and wider society - the Church has been actively engaged on this issue for some time. 

In April 2021, the Archbishops’ Anti-Racism Taskforce issued its report ‘From Lament to Action’, proposing a suite of changes to begin bringing about a change of culture in the life of the Church of England. 

This work is now continuing with the Archbishops’ Racial Justice Commission, which is setting out a compelling agenda for change and will report to the Archbishops at regular intervals with recommendations to help the Archbishops fulfil their commitments to identify, respond to, and root out systemic racism in the Church.
