I'm in full-time parish ministry here in Aotearoa New Zealand, and I’ve found that the June residential programme reading and assignment work are able to be balanced with ministry and the needs of my young family. Crucially, the assignment and thesis work are opportunities to apply my learning and research to my own ministry setting, which is allowing me to ground my learning in my context. At the same time, the scholarship and support offered by the faculty at the School of Theology are world-class. Since there’s no equivalent opportunity to study liturgics locally, it was vital to me to find a study programme that was grounded in Anglican tradition and history, and in touch with contemporary liturgical scholarship and practice from around the Anglican Communion, and I’m excited to have found these things at Sewanee.
What do our students say about the program?
