'Spirit and Power: African Christianity's Challenge to the Church of England'

This is the latest webinar in the Power in the Church of England series, organised by the Michael Ramsey Centre for Anglican Studies at Durham University and the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion at Lancaster University.

These webinars explore

  • The many forms of power that shape the life of the Church;
  • The ways in which these forms of power shape people’s experience in and around the Church;
  • The various accounts of power (theological and sociological, for instance) that circulate in and around the Church;
  • What it means for power to be exercised in healthy ways; and
  • The nature and impact of the misuse and abuse of power.

The full list of webinars, with links to recordings of previous talks in this series, is available here.
