Legal group Christian Concern has spoken out against new resources published by the Church of England to support schools teaching relationships, sex and health education. Christian Concern claimed that the new charter, released on Friday, goes against the Church’s beliefs and Bible teaching. Chief executive of the charity, Andrea Williams, said in a statement: “The Church of England has a God-given opportunity and responsibility to set the culture of its schools in line with the teaching of God found in the Bible. But instead, it consistently capitulates to the spirit of the age as, for example, expressed in statute by the Equality Act. "This charter fails to protect teachers, governors and children who wish to state and uphold the Church’s own teaching on marriage and family. "It also represents a missed opportunity to bring the good news of God’s purposes and pattern for human relationships to the confused and toxic environment in which the one million children they are responsible for are having to grow up.”
