Children of an Imperial God
'In Heaven there will be people of all races ... I don't think the Church has come to terms with that yet.'
(THE REV JOHN SENTAMU )
The missionary had as much influence on the British Empire as the politician and the soldier; his achievements may well prove more durable. Today, as a result of his success, the great majority of practising Anglicans are black - they are Africans, Indians and West Indians, spread across six continents.
Over the last 30 years this challenge - of a multi-racial English church - has come home. How has the Church, so successful at foreign missionary work, reacted to it? Using little-known archive footage, this film traces the story of black Christians and the Church in Britain.
'They made me feel there was one God for the white, and one for the black'
(MAXINE GOCAN, EX-ANGLICAN).
