The Church of England is considering introducing a thirty per cent quota for ethnic minority clergy on its strategic leadership development programme, a leaked report has revealed. It is also planning to provide training on racism and give context about church statues that might cause " pain or offence" as part of their efforts to combat racism within the institution.
A leaked report contains calls for the Church of England leaders to "acknowledge, repent and take decisive action to address the shameful history and legacy."
Around fifteen per cent of people in England and Wales are from minority ethnic backgrounds. Most of them are not Christian or descended from Christians. Three-point-four per cent of the population of England and Wales are of African descent.
