Throughout its life and work TEAC has had a particular interest and concern for improving the teaching of ‘The Anglican Way’ in theological education. Information about its work can be found in the department's report to the Anglican Consultative Council in 2019.

Being Anglican

Part 1 is a course all about the history lying behind contemporary Anglicanism and is designed to be used by small groups or in individual study.

Part 2 is a collection of short video testimonies from all kinds of Anglicans from across the Anglican Communion with additional video commentaries from a range of scholars, on six different aspects of Anglicanism. A guidebook to the videos is available here.

What do Anglicans Believe?
A Study Guide to Christian Doctrine from Anglican and Ecumenical Statements

An interactive guide to Christian doctrine, based on Anglican and ecumenical statements, is available here. Taking advantage of the availability of official statements on various websites, this concise and well grounded introduction to the nature of doctrine, the Creeds and the doctrine of the Church has been written for use in home groups, study programmes, seminaries and theological colleges across the Anglican Communion. It has been produced by members of the Inter Anglican Standing Commission on Unity, Faith and Order (IASCUFO) working in partnership with TEAC.

IASCUFO (the Inter-Anglican Standing Commission on Unity, Faith and Order) has  published two occasional papers, 3 and 4, under the title God so Loved the World. These are a valuable resource for the teaching of Christian doctrine.

Being Human and Salvation: New Anglican Statements

Paper 3, ‘Created in the Image of God’, presents an Anglican theological understanding of what it is to be human. This is a statement that is both beautiful and profound. It states why people matter. It says that humans have a God-given dignity, and that to fail to acknowledge human dignity opens the way to many of the evil and violent things that afflict humanity. The paper sets out the importance of Christ for understanding why justice matters, both for creation, and for all people. It is a theological vision with massive moral implications.

Paper 4, ‘God’s Sovereignty and our Salvation’, rebuts the temptation in some places to question or even deny that other Christians are saved in and by Christ. It affirms that judgment belongs to God alone, and that nobody has the capacity or right to call into question the spiritual status of anyone else.

You can download the IASCUFO Papers 3 and 4 here, or you can order them in some territories from Amazon (ISBN: 978-1911007227].

TEAC is helping to prepare the Anglican Communion for the Lambeth Conference in 2022 by taking on and completing the Mission Theology in the Anglican  Communion project. This project has organised three intercontinental conferences of global South theologians.

TEAC has now published the conference books which are on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s three priorities of reconciliation, evangelism and the renewal of prayer and the religious life. Click here for further information.

The Bible in the Life of the Church

Bible in the Life of the Church or BILC seeks to help us engage more deeply with the Bible through gathering together a tool-box of educational resources. The contents of the tool-box come from all over the Anglican Communion and are designed to help everyone from provinces, dioceses, congregations, small groups and individuals deepen their understanding of the Bible.

Gender Justice study materials

These study materials offer perspectives from a diverse international group of Anglican theologians and have been developed to make them suitable for adaptation to multiple contexts. Their reflections invite critique and conversation that is best undertaken within a respectful, theological community. It will be important to explore and contextualise the language and terminology used as part of the learning process.
