The Church of England depends on its flagships above all else. Known as 'resource churches', their purpose is to bring the other vessels into line- to conquer and to colonise. They are weapons of war in the scramble for the Church of England. Fresh from his excoriating analysis of the Church of England's institutionally racist heart in Ghost Ship, A.D.A France-Williams unveils the insidious ways that colonial and imperialist mentalities have crept into the church, and the particular theologies which underpin them As they turn the local into the general, and the diverse into the bland, the Church of England's flagships, France-Williams argues, are another symptom of an institution that has never quite rid itself of its old obsession with empire-building.

A.D.A France-Williams

A.D.A. France-Williams is a pioneer priest at Ascension Church, Hulme, Manchester. He is the author of Ghost Ship: Institutional Racism in the Church of England.
