av Irreverend: Faith and Current Affairs | Publicerades 2/5/2021

In this week's episode, Revs Jamie and Tom catch up on recent developments, including Tom's shocking lack of knowledge of the contemporary film world. We review a recently leaked document which suggests that 20% per cent of congregants in the CofE will not return after the pandemic restrictions are lifted, and which also postulates "radical changes" for the Church in general. We also talk through the recent Cambridge Union debate on lockdown, which was won by the anti-lockdown debaters. After all that, we get to some of the always interesting correspondence that we've been sent this week.Please visit friend of the show James Blott’s blog Reflective Preacher!As always, please email any comments, suggestion, criticisms etc to, follow us on Twitter @irreverendpod, rate and review us on iTunes, and now follow us on YouTube!
