David Hewlett is a British Anglican priest, Methodist minister, and academic specialising in practical theology. Since 2003, he has served as Principal of The Queen's Foundation, an ecumenical theological college in Birmingham. He previously served in parish ministry in the Diocese of St Albans and the Diocese of Truro, and taught at the Church of Ireland Theological Institute, at Trinity College, Dublin, on the South West Ministry Training Course, and at the University of Exeter.
In this talk he will reflect on the way leadership in the life of the Church is shaped by a general culture which includes an emphasis on hierarchical personal relationships, on the 'specialness' of calling, and on theologies of control, obedience and trust. He will explore whether and how such a culture makes more likely breaches and abuses of trust.
