The Archbishop of Canterbury delivered the William Temple Foundation’s annual lecture on Monday, at Lambeth Palace. It was entitled Reimagining Britain: Faith and the Common Good.

The William Temple Foundation’s director of research, Professor Chris Baker, described it as “a realistic but hopeful assessment of the state of the nation, the place of the church and religion, and the prospects for a revitalised social and public sphere. It was a lecture brimming with intellectual and theological ideas, but also characterised by down-to-earth and personal anecdotes.”
