Time To Disestablish The Church Of England? - the video

November 3, 2021 3:16 PM

Our third Liberal Democrat Federal Conference virtual event, held on 20th March 2021.

Is It Time To Disestablish The Church Of England?

Why does the Church of England still have a privileged role in British politics, with reserved seats in the Lords for its bishops?

How entangled are the British church and state, and how can we disentangle them?


  • Simon Barrow (Co-Director, Ekklesia Christian think tank)
  • Baroness Lorely Burt (HSLD Co-President)
  • Cordelia Tucker O'Sullivan (lead author, "Time for Reflection" report on religion or belief in government)

Chaired by Alistair Carmichael MP (Liberal Democrat spokesperson, Constitutional Reform).
