Power and the Church of England Text

This is the first webinar in the new 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.

The webinar series will 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.

In this first webinar, Liz Graveling, Frankie Ward and Mark Tanner will explore the difference between 'power over' and 'power with' in the Church of England.

Liz Graveling is Research Officer with the Church of England's National Ministry Team

Frankie Ward is Priest in Charge of St Michael’s and St John’s Churches in Workington, Cumbria

Mark Tanner is Bishop of Chester
