Splashing our Way to the Peaceable Kingdom: Facing Conflict with Footwashing, Forgiveness and Neighbour-Love

Revd Dr Christopher Landau was appointed Director of ReSource in 2021, having previously led the ‘ReSource Future’ process in 2017-18. He is married to Carolyn and they have three children. The family have moved to Telford from Oxford, where Christopher was previously an associate minister at St Aldates Church, a chaplain with the Oxford Pastorate, and an honorary cathedral chaplain at Christ Church.

Having grown up in a traditional market town Anglican parish, Christopher read Theology at Cambridge University (as a choral scholar at Trinity College) before moving to London as a BBC News trainee. There he joined a local parish church that had just received a plant from Holy Trinity Brompton. His faith came alive in unexpected ways, and six months after being appointed as the BBC World Service’s religious affairs correspondent, he felt a calling to ordination. During training at Ripon College Cuddesdon he began work towards a doctorate in Christian Ethics, completed during his curacy in west London. His work on disagreement among Christians has been published by SCM Press as ‘A Theology of Disagreement’, and he is passionate about Christians hearing the Spirit’s call to pursue loving unity, seeking the fruit of the Spirit, even in the face of inevitable disagreements.

His work for the ReSource Future process helped re-affirm ReSource’s commitment to seeking the work of the Holy Spirit in ‘little, local and ordinary’ churches, for the purpose of mission. He is passionate about promoting constructive conversation about the Holy Spirit’s work, across the different traditions of the church. You can read more about Christopher’s vision for ReSource’s ministry in this interview on the Psephizo blog.
