A2: Social Change: Church of England Letter

The following is an excellent example of how religion can seek and sometimes achieve social change. The Church of England have written a 52-page open letter to help church members consider how to negotiate ‘dangerous times to build the kind of society which people say they want’

Also, it is a good example for secularisation. Shiner (1967) argues that when religion is more concerned with secular issues than the spiritual it is a sign of ‘conformity’.
