Archbishop Justin Welby has conferred Lambeth doctorates on two people who played a central role in the Church of England’s landmark Living in Love and Faith project.

The Rt Revd Dr Christopher Cocksworth, Bishop of Coventry, and Dr Eeva John (1979) were each granted the Lambeth Doctorate of Divinity, in recognition of the “outstanding theological quality and intellectual rigour” of their work.

Dr Eeva John was appointed in 2017 to the role of Enabling Officer for Living in Love and Faith and the Pastoral Advisory Group, Archbishop’s Council.

Using her “keen and creative understanding of practical theology, attention to method, theological depth and extraordinary people skills”, her citation said, Dr John played a central role in coordinating the wide-ranging participation needed to ensure the project reflected a variety of voices and experiences.

Dr Eeva John was the first woman admitted as a Senior Scholar in 1979, making her the first woman through the doors of Christ Church.
