In memoriam

The Queen's Foundation Lecture is launched in memory of Professor John M. Hull. John was a tutor at Queen's from 2004 until his death in the summer of 2015. The title of the inaugural lecture 'Towards a Prophetic Church of England' draws from John's latest book Towards a Prophetic Church published by SCM Press in 2014.

The lecture was given at All Saints Kings Heath, where John was actively involved for many years
