Fulcrum, an avowed ‘centre-ground’ evangelical Anglican think tank, has celebrated 10 years in existence and announced changes to its leadership team.
The new chairman is Rev. John Watson, Vicar of St Paul’s, Tupsley, and St Andrews, Hampton Bishop, in the diocese of Hereford. He has been a leadership team member since 2007 and is doing doctoral studies at Kings College, London.
There are three new team members. One is Ven. Alastair Cutting, Archdeacon of Lewisham and Greenwich. He is a former pro-prolocutor of the Canterbury province in the General Synod and a member of the CofE Evangelical Council.
The second is Paula Gooder, theologian in residence with the Bible Society, a writer and lecturer in biblical studies. Her research areas are the works of Paul, New Testament interpretation and the development of ministry in that period. She is a member of General Synod.
The third member is Andy Walton, writer and broadcaster, who is involved in community organising. He works for the Contextual Theology Centre based in London’s East End. He is author of the report Is there a religious right emerging in Britain? published earlier this year by the Theos think-tank.
The outgoing chairman, Rev. Stephen Kuhrt, has been a regular contributor of articles to the Fulcrum and will continue to write.
General secretary John Martin said, ‘As Fulcrum enters its second decade, with 789 original articles, it’s an opportune time to strengthen our leadership team and commitment to publishing high quality online theological journalism’.
