'A parish church in north London no longer wants the Anglican evangelical mission agency the Church Pastoral Aid Society (CPAS) as its patron, and is seeking patronage more in harmony with the congregation’s outlook. The Inclusive Church logo is prominent on the website of St Luke’s, West Holloway, along with the Pride flag, and is 'very much who we are as a church', the Vicar, the Revd John MacKenzie, says.’

The Church Times reports on the initiative of St Luke’s PCC to find a more appropriate patron than CPAS and in a second story asks if now is the time to disempower some of the church’s central hierarchies and place a little more trust in the local.’
