This week, the Church Commissioners have defended their multi-million-pound stake in Amazon after the online company was heavily criticised by the Archbishop of Canterbury in his speech to the Trade Union Congress this week for “paying almost nothing in tax”.

Madeleine Davies tells us how she broke the story.

Plus, we look at our new month-long feature series on the religious life: from centuries-old monasteries to dispersed communities and new monastics.
