The work of this department was established in the Anglican Communion Office as a result of the activity of TEAC (Theological Education for the Anglican Communion), the Working Party established by the Anglican Primates in 2003.
The Director of Theological Studies is Clare Amos. A significant part of her role is to act as Secretary to TEAC and to take forward a number of significant projects established by TEAC. However her brief in the area of theological education and studies ranges more widely, and she has built up links in a number of Anglican Provinces with those responsible for the work of theological education. She also works closely with members of the Department of Ecumenical Affairs, particularly in relation to the Inter Anglican Theological and Doctrinal Commission.
Clare Amos has studied both at the University of Cambridge and the Ecole Biblique et Archeologique Francaise, Jerusalem. She is a specialist in biblical studies. She has lived and worked in Jerusalem and the Lebanon, as well as her own country of England. She has been involved in theological education and training in a wide variety of contexts, including residential and non-residential ordination training, continuing ministerial education, lay training and the training of Readers and other lay ministers. Until recently she was the editor of The Reader, the national journal for Anglican (Lay) Readers. She has written or contributed to a number of books and periodicals in the fields of biblical studies, inter faith concerns and spirituality.
