Representatives of churches in the diocese in Europe have expressed “deep fear and concern” to the British Government about the future of the UK outside the European Union.
Eighteen clergy from the diocese in Europe, including the Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, Dr Robert Innes, gathered at the British Embassy in Brussels on Wednesday last week. They had a two-hour discussion, via video link, with the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Exiting the EU, Lord Bridges of Headley, who was in London. The British Ambassador to Belgium, Alison Rose, joined the clergy for the discussion.
The meeting took place as the Prime Minister laid out how the Government plans to disentangle the UK from the EU in the coming months
