Despite the Prime Minister declaring 'Britain is a Christian country' this week, a former church leader has insisted the country is now going into a 'post-Christian' phase.
Responding in the Daily Telegraph to Mr Cameron's remarks, Former Archbishop Rowan Williams, now Lord Williams, wrote: "[Britain is] post-Christian in the sense that habitual practice for most of the population is not taken for granted.
"A Christian nation can sound like a nation of committed believers, and we are not that.
"It’s a matter of defining terms. A Christian country as a nation of believers? No.
"A Christian country in the sense of still being very much saturated by this vision of the world and shaped by it? Yes."
Mr Cameron sparked the debate in a column written for Easter for the Church Times, in which he insisted the UK remained a Christian country.
What do you think? Is the church still a central part of life in modern Britain - or is it increasingly irrelevant?
