St Aidan’s Lectures 2023: The Environmental Crisis and the Church

The 2023 St Aidan’s Lectures will be delivered by the Rev Canon Dr James Currall, Priest in Charge of St Andrew’s, Tain, St Maelrhubha’s, Lairg, St Columba’s, Brora, and St Mary’s by the Cross, Tongue, in the Diocese of Moray, Ross, and Caithness, and Canon of St Andrew’s Cathedral, Inverness.

Dr Currall studied Biology at the University of Manchester, and completed his doctorate in Botany at the University of Aberdeen. He lectured in Environmental Sciences at the University of Bradford until the cuts to higher education during the 1980s. A second career in computer sciences, data management, and statistics brought him to the University of Glasgow, and an active involvement in the Scottish Episcopal Church. He completed studies at the Theological Institute of the SEC and his curacy at St Columba’s, Largs, and, when he retired from the University of Glasgow, moved to Sutherland, where he has served ever since. He is also a member of the SEC Liturgy Committee.
