About us

This site is maintained by the Church of England Parliamentary Unit, based in Westminster, London, UK.

We support the work of the Church of England in Parliament, including the bishops in the House of Lords (the Lords Spiritual) and the Second Church Estates Commissioner in the House of Commons.

The site was created in February 2014 to host material relating to that work, including parliamentary speeches and questions, background material and comment. If you have any queries, do please get in touch with one of us:

Richard Chapman, Head of Parliamentary Affairs

Simon Stanley, Deputy Head of Parliamentary Affairs

Naomi Maxwell, Parliamentary Assistant to the Archbishop of Canterbury

Thea Pope, Parliamentary Assistant to the Bishop of Ely

Rachel Senior, Parliamentary Assistant to the Bishop of St Albans
