In an open letter to the Archbishop, Christian parents Nigel and Sally Rowe had called on the Church of England (CofE) to urgently scrap its ‘Valuing All God’s Children’ (VAGC) guidance which covers 4,700 CofE primary schools. The letter was sent following the Rowes’ legal victory against the Department for Education (DfE) in September 2022, which led to a £22,000 settlement for legal costs and a commitment from the government to reform its...

It was produced following an international conference organised by the European Jewish Congress, at which academics gathered to discuss how prejudice and discrimination can be tackled. Among the policies mentioned in the document was the idea of warning messages in holy texts, a topic discussed in a chapter entitled 'recommendations regarding Religious Groups and Institutions'....

Welby did say he would be willing to attend a state dinner in Trump’s honor if the president comes to Britain on an official visit. …

    The Archbishop of Canterbury is working with other Christian churches to agree on a fixed date for Easter. Justin Welby made the announcement after a meeting of primates from the Anglican Communion in Canterbury. In the UK, an act of Parliament passed in 1928 allowed for Easter Sunday to be fixed on the first Sunday after the second Saturday in April. However, this has never been activated and Easter has remained variable, determined by the moon's cycle. Easter is the most important Christian festival, as it celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ following his death by crucifixion on Good Friday....

Forty years of debate and campaigning over the role of women in leadership in the Established Church was brought to an end in just 10 minutes as the Church’s General Synod symbolically showed its approval for the change through a simple show of hands and a few signatures on a piece of paper....

    It will take "something very, very major" to get the UK out of its economic "depression", the Archbishop of Canterbury has said. A "severe" economic crisis and "a breakdown in confidence" made for "a generational problem", the Most Rev Justin Welby said. "Recapitalising at least one of our major banks" and breaking it up into regional banks could help, he said. He was speaking at a Bible Society-organised event at Westminster. The former oil executive is on Parliament's banking standards commission and his comments come days before the release of gross domestic product figures that are expected to show the...
