A discussion paper 'Thinking Afresh About Welfare' has been released today by the Church of England.
The paper, by Rev Dr Malcolm Brown, Director of the Mission and Public Affairs Division of Archbishops' Council, was endorsed by the May meeting of the House of Bishops as a discussion document.
Malcolm Brown said: "This is a considered response to the changing face of welfare provision, to help discussion across the church. It is not a policy paper, but aims to be a thoughtful contribution to the welfare debate."
