Flourishing in the Church of England Today

Posted by Ros Clarke, 23 May 2018

How can the gospel continue to flourish in the Church of England today? Rod Thomas, Bishop of Maidstone, examined the opportunities and obstacles ahead

The second session of the 2018 Church Society Conference focussed on the contemporary situation in the Church of England. Our newly-elected President, Rt Revd Rod Thomas, explored two biblical metaphors for growth: the tree and the body. He then identified five key aspects about the Church of England, showing how they are both reasons for hope and causes for concern.

Listen to Rod’s talk here.
