Authorized Form of NameHarper; Michael Claude (1931-2010); Anglican Charismatic leader
ForenamesMichael Claude
EpithetAnglican Charismatic leader
ActivityWon a scholarship to Gresham's School, Holt, then attended Emmanuel College, Cambridge University, where he read Law and Theology. Curate at All Souls Church, Langham Place, London when he received what Pentecostals and charismatics refer to as the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, a religious experience accompanied by speaking in tongues. This put him at odds with the church's evangelical rector, John Stott, and he left All Souls in 1964 to found the Fountain Trust, an organisation dedicated to spreading the charismatic message. He left Anglicanism in 1995 because of what he saw as the Church of England's increasing doctrinal laxity, particularly with regard to the ordination of women. He and his wife, Jeanne, joined the Orthodox Church. He was ordained and made the first dean of the then newly established Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of the British Isles and Ireland. He was subsequently made an archpriest by the late Metropolitan Gabriel of Western and Central Europe in 2005. He was senior priest of The Orthodox Parish of Saint Botolph in London.
