Speaker:  Dr Linda Parker, author and independent scholar

Based upon extensive interviews with retired and serving chaplains, this talk explores the changing role of Naval Chaplains since 1945. It reveals many continuities along with the changes in the service which will permit some reflection on the direction in which the Royal Navy chaplaincy is headed and its likely role in the future.
