Theological Education

Theological Education for the Anglican Communion (TEAC) was an initiative set up by the Anglican Primates in 2003 with the aim of helping all Anglican Christians to be theologically alert and sensitive to the call of God.

They stated that, “We should all be thoughtful and prayerful in reading and hearing the Holy Scriptures, both in the light of the past and with an awareness of present and future needs.”

Theological Education aims to serve the strategic aims of the Anglican Communion Office to foster intentional discipleship, promote peace, reconciliation and justice and strengthen awareness of Anglican identity. It aims to respect exploration and experiment, honour every local context and, at the same time, calls each member together into communion and mutual accountability.

TEAC aims to build educational and training networks of mutual learning and friendship and equip leaders through the development of online theological resources. It is also co-ordinating and promoting theological education for mission among the churches of the Communion in the lead up to the Lambeth Conference 2022. For more information please see the TEAC report to the Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Hong Kong in 2019

The information and resources on offer are not just for clergy or those training for ministry, but for the whole people of God in their learning of discipleship. These materials will be updated each year. Here is a selection:
