Reports in the media this Monday 19 April have highlighted that there has been, over many years and continues to be, institutional racism in the Church of England are extremely sad and shocking. The Panorama programme that covered this, brought out some of the long term hurt that has been and continues to be experienced by both clergy and church members alike. We, at St Paul’s take these reports very seriously and want it to be known that we as a church are committed to being anti-racist in all that we do and stand for. We want to ensure that St Paul’s is a safe place for everyone who comes and as such racism will not be tolerated. We urge anyone experiencing any such behaviour to make it known to Mark Melluish or the Church Wardens.
