The College of Bishops met in Oxford from 16th to 18th September 2019.

Time was spent in prayerful reflection. The bishops reviewed the work of the Pastoral Advisory Group and considered progress to date of Living in Love and Faith, the Church of England’s teaching and learning resources on relationships, marriage, identity and sexuality, which are currently under development.

The College also reflected on the national situation, discussing the outlook for Brexit.

They also considered the vision for theological education and explored ministry plans in dioceses.

Was handling of abuse cases not on the agenda – or do they just not want to tell us?

It does seem a missed opportunity not to have been updated, and time to reflect, on the most recent IICSA hearings. Will LLF incorporate the vital learning from IICSA?
