Christian convert from Islam, on the experience of racism faced by converts

Bishop Riah Abu El Assal, Emeritus Bishop of Jerusalem


This historic meeting for the first time explores with prayer and truth-speaking the teaching of Christ’s Gospel for the oppressed, and sets this against shocking personal testimonies from Anglican and non-Anglican clergy of systematic persecution, racism, sexual abuse and bullying perpetrated against them by some in senior leadership of the Church of England.

How has the Established Church of the land responded to the witness of clergy and lay people who have suffered such abuse? Indeed, have we properly acknowledged the conflict between the primitive Christian faith of slaves and the persecuted, and the colonialist history of an Anglican Church linked to worldly power and the British Empire?

How can Anglicans and others work practically together to bring about repentance and reform?
