Religion Media Centre Annual Lecture 2020

‘The nature of Britishness in a post-Brexit world’

At the Religion Media Centre’s inaugural lecture, the Revd Diarmaid MacCulloch Kt argued that Protestantism is now a ‘private hobby’ and its decline is threatening the cohesion of the United Kingdom. The lecture, at St Martin-in-the-Fields in central London in February 2020, was followed by an animated conversation with broadcaster, Roger Bolton, and a response by the vicar, Revd Dr. Sam Wells. A packed audience probed the question that if Protestantism is the glue that stuck our nations together and gave us identity, what can replace it now that its relevance is diminished? The evening was introduced by Revd Sally Hitchiner.
