Rev Matthew Ineson and David Greenwood staged a protest outside York Minster to highlight Church of England Safeguarding failures.
250 leaflets with the call for independence in safeguarding decisions were handed to the congregation of the Sunday morning General Synod service. Many positive conversations were had with Synod members and other clergy.
A surprise guest, Taliulah (Matthew’s pet dog), provided moral support.
The impetus for change is growing from within the church and it is hoped that the church will respect IICSA Inquiry recommendations which are likely to require independent oversight in one form or another.
