The Reverend Denis Duncan, who sadly died at the beginning of 2014, was a distinguished Church of Scotland Minister who had a particular interest in the fields of journalism, communication, and healing.

This lecture, the first in what is planned to be an annual series, is intended to commemorate Denis Duncan’s long association with the Guild of Health, and to continue his great gifts as a Christian communicator who desired to resonate with contemporary theology.

There will be an opportunity to meet John Bell after the Lecture at a short reception to be held in the Crypt Hall at St Marylebone Parish Church.
