With these dynamics in mind we expressly explored the issue of churchmanship, recognizing that as far as bishops are concerned churchmanship raises distinctive problems of how party commitment might detract from being the focus of unity for all clergy and people. As a background complement for this issue, however, we should not ignore the broad British cultural fact that, in the political world, though members of parliament are elected as party-political persons, once elected they exist to serve members of all parties and none.

Here we are faced with bishops possessing a sacred office, related to a despised founder, who are a sign of contradiction and whose mission is to infiltrate a networked world with a faith that they must interpret in ways that may ‘influence those elements in modern culture that militate against any form of religious belief’ (2002: 207). We do not present Beeson’s desire for a distinctive category of ‘visionary leader’ as simplistic idealism, but as reflective of the complexity involved in a religious institution cognizant of the equally complex cultural change in which it is set and aware that its major resource of response lies in individuals.

Religious Leadership in a Changing Society 23 Case Study: School and College Influence One former suffragan and diocesan bishop saw amongst the major influences on his life that of his father – ‘a quiet and shy man who loved his work’ as a ‘doctor to … a whole community … an example of unfussy dedication’. His mother was the daughter ‘of a Christian Socialist parson’ and, although the household was churchgoing, he did not particularly ‘love church services as a boy’. It was his boarding school – ‘not particularly prestigious’ – that made a considerable impression upon him.
