An open letter to the Archbishop of Canterbury

I ask forgiveness from above for making this an open letter, but any local parishioner trying to elicit a response from Lambeth Palace, has a tough challenge ahead. I learnt this some seven years ago. It is not impossible but the last time it was only enabled by my buttonholing the Bishop of Ebbsfleet, Jonathan Goodall, after a Patronal Festival, who intervened on my behalf. More importantly, the issue for which I am contacting the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, is on the minds of many other Anglican church worshippers.

Archbishop of Canterbury
Justin Welby

Your Grace,

Everywhere local churches, already struggling for funds, face further jeorpardy from restrictions imposed by government measures regarding a virus, SARS-COV-2. Like so many other churchgoers I no longer attend mass because I refuse to social distance, wear a mask or conform in any way to the Satanic practices imposed on us through an act, Coronavirus Act (2020), which, according to Lord Sumption, was rushed through parliament and allows government to dictate policy without proper parliamentary debate. The Coronavirus Act (2020) is supposed to be an emergency measure yet it looks like becoming enshrined in law for the foreseeable future, unless something is done. It is poisoning society, destroying jobs and dividing people.

Having listened to your sermons, having watched your interview with Alastair Campbell, I am convinced that you are a sincere Christian, as is fitting for the head of the Church of England. I was impressed with your ‘combating loneliness’ sermon at the end of September in Washington National Cathedral to which I listened attentively. It convinced me that writing to you is not a forlorn hope – providing, of course, you get to see the content.

In your ‘combating loneliness’ sermon you said that in these days of pandemic:

Fear is as prevalent as the virus and causes us to turn inwards . . .

Well-observed. Fear is what has been driving the government narrative. COVID-19 deaths peaked in April and, like all viruses, SARS-COV-2 has run its course, making fear even more prevalent now than the virus. The government no longer relies on death figures to propagate fear. Instead it relies on infection rates from a totally unreliable PCR test put out to one favoured company without its need to tender a contract. Similarly one company was hand-picked to monitor complications from the untested vaccines being trialled on an unsuspecting UK populace, recipients of which have not been informed of the guinea-pig nature of this experiment.

Only you can get the churches back. There is no need for any churchgoers to be driven by fear from their places of worship. You have it in your power to override even emergency government measures with a common-sense law which gives you that privilege. It is the Magna Carta confirmation of liberties. As I am sure you know it states:

FIRST, We have granted to God, and by this our present Charter have confirmed, for Us and our Heirs for ever, that the Church of England shall be free, and shall have all her whole Rights and Liberties inviolable. We have granted also, and given to all the Freemen of our Realm, for Us and our Heirs for ever, these Liberties under-written, to have and to hold to them and their Heirs, of Us and our Heirs for ever.

The Church of England is free. Forever free. You can disregard the dictates from the mouths of Satan’s disciples and get the churches back. All you need to do is petition Her Majesty, The Queen, as head of our church.

The only belief that I know Alastair Campbell clings to is a certainty of Iraq having had weapons of mass destruction in 2003. Nevertheless he still had the temerity to ask you if you believed in God. He also asked if you were going to heaven. You never hesitated in answering him on either point. In the church, in our baptismal services, we are asked if we “renounce the Devil and all his works”. The time to do so, I believe, is upon us. This is within your power.

In brotherly love,

John Goss

Unlike George Fox I have had no need to tremble in front of the Lord Protector, Oliver Cromwell, in speaking truth to power. The Archbishop of Canterbury appears a warm and friendly character in whom I have no fears to take my petition. Neither do I fear a virus which has been used to subjugate people en masse. During the plague one out of every three people died. That is a pandemic. What we have now is the propagation of fear in place of a pandemic. I am encouraged that the Archbishop of Canterbury could see this too.

  1. Hi John,

    Just checking if we can exchange emails as some issues are better dealt with via email than Blogs and ‘social media’. Incidentally, I now appear to be banned by Youtube; although I don’t have an account, I have suddenly found I cannot comment under youtube videos, no matter how innocuous my comment.


    ‘And the devil led him (Jesus) into a high mountain, and shewed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And he said to him: To thee will I give all this power, and the glory of them; for to me they are delivered, and to whom I will, I give them. If thou therefore wilt adore before me, all shall be thine.’ Luke lV : 5-7



  2. John, I can see that you are an incorrigible optimist. Writing to the AB of C indeed!

    About as much relevance to salvation history as “Pope” Bergoglio, though I admit that Welby might actually be a nice man, whereas the Argentine heretic has few redeeming features. I speak as a Catholic of course


    1. Yes, Mark, I wrote something there that a thousand priests up and down the country would love to have written if they had the will or courage. If Mahatma Gandhi could write to Hitler and ask him to stop his warring it is not beyond me write to the A of C in hope of saving the church. A cat can look at the Queen they say.
