A VICAR HAS RESIGNED as a governor at a Church of England (CofE) primary school after school leadership took the unprecedented step of granting permission for a child under the age of twelve to announce to his class his transition from a boy to a girl, without any agreed procedures or policies and without informing parents until it was too late.

Wilberforce Academy Director, Dr Joe Boot, argues that the Church has progressively stepped away from its legacy of cultural apologetics, and – in line with the changing culture – has begun preaching only a gospel message of personal salvation.

Tim Dieppe reviews new book, The Virtue of Nationalism, by Israeli academic Yoram Hazony.
