About this event

Faith and leadership in a global pandemic

Jason Leitch CBE, National Clinical Director Scotland

The Beckly Lecture 2021, hosted by the Joint Public Issues Team.

In this time of great upheaval, what does it mean to wrestle with the challenges of a global pandemic as a Christian in leadership?

Join us for the 2021 Beckly Lecture, which will be given by Professor Jason Leitch CBE. Professor Leitch has worked for the Scottish Government since 2007, and in January 2015 was appointed as the National Clinical Director of Scotland. He is one of the senior team responsible for the NHS in Scotland and a Scottish Government Director, and has been at the forefront of the Coronavirus pandemic response in Scotland.

He will speak from his experience as a public health leader during a global pandemic, and about how his faith informs and supports his work.

There will be a chance for Q & A as we explore these questions together. The lecture will take place on Zoom, and will take place during the Methodist Conference.

What is the Beckly Lecture?

The Beckly Social Services Lecture takes place every year, alongside the Methodist Conference. John Henry Beckly, a lay Wesleyan Methodist, founded the trust which is responsible for the lectures in 1926.

According to the original charter of the Beckly Trust "the function of the Lectureship shall be to set forth the social implications of Christianity and to further the development of a Christian sociology and the expressions of the Christian attitude in reference to social, industrial, economic and international subjects."
