Speech of the Bishop of Truro, The Rt. Revd. Philip Mounstephen at the Launch of the Independent Review of FCO support for Persecuted Christians
First of all, I do really want to thank the Foreign Secretary for launching this Independent Review into the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s own response to this pressing issue. And I want to tell you Foreign Secretary that there are many, many people around the world who are very grateful for that, and for giving it priority at a time when other issues and considerations could so easily swamp it. And if I may say so you can’t hear the Foreign Secretary speak without recognising how closely he holds this issue to his heart. In his own words, ‘I would like this exercise to consider some tough questions and offer ambitious policy recommendations’. And as Chair of this Independent Review that is what I am determined that it should do.

When the Notre-Dame fire began, I was up at the Sacré Coeur in the eighteenth arrondissement. It was a sunny afternoon, and crowds were sat on the green in front of the church making the most of the fine weather. Dance music was being played to a medium volume while a man with a football performed tricks at the top of the hill. It was a festival-like scene. This was Sacré Coeur as one of many tourist hot-spots. Busy, vibrant, unremarkable.

Today, 9 May 2019, the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, IICSA, published its 252-page report into the Anglican Church based on its case studies last year of the Diocese of Chichester and the response to allegations against the former Bishop of Gloucester, Peter Ball. The Church’s Press Release is reproduced , to which we have appended the five recommendations of the IIISA. The IICSA will make further recommendations directly related to the findings of this report following the hearing in July 2019, which will focus upon the wider Anglican Church.

In a longer than usual post, Andrew Atherstone offers a fascinating account of the meeting in Hong Kong: It has been a great privilege, and in many ways a joy, to attend the seventeenth meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC-17) in Hong Kong, as part of the Church of England’s delegation.
