David Hilborn: The Moorlands principal on education, theology and Brexit

June 7, 2019

Rev Dr David Hilborn has spent most of his career working in theological education. The current principal of Moorlands college was previously principal of St John’s College, Nottingham and also played an influential role in the beginnings of St Mellitus College, now one of the largest training colleges in the Anglican Church worldwide.  In this in-depth interview with Premier Christianity’s Sam Hailes, David shares his life story, which has included pastoral ministry in local churches, working for the Evangelical Alliance and switching denominations from the United Reformed Church to the Church of England. He also comments on the current Brexit divisions, and expresses his “frustration” with Christian leaders who preach sermons which are disconnected from the scriptures.
