Following the resolution passed at ACC-14 (14.05) 'The Bible in the Life of the Church' a Steering Group has been appointed to take the work forward. It meets for the first time with the Chair, Archbishop David Moxon, Bishop of Waikato, New Zealand at the Anglican Communion Office from November 30th to December 3rd, 2009.
The work of the project will be undertaken in six regional groups hosted, in the main, by theological colleges within the Communion and a number of 'user groups' who will test out the work of the regional groups. Each regional group will have a coordinator who will be a member of the Steering Group. The Regional Groups are located in East Africa (St Paul’s, Limuru, Kenya), Southern Africa (University of KwaZulu-Natal and the Anglican House of Studies), North America (University of the South, Sewanee, USA), SE Asia (Trinity Theological College, Singapore), Oceania (drawing on the resources of the theological colleges in Melbourne, Australia) and Europe (Queen’s Foundation, Birmingham, England).
In addition to the co-ordinators of the Regional Groups the Steering Group will have three ‘theological consultants’ from Nigeria, Cuba and USA.
After this meeting the outline of the work of the project and progress reports will appear on the Anglican Communion website. There will also be further postings on ACNS.
