Theology

Overview & News

Saint Thomas Church takes theology seriously. Theology properly begins as “faith seeking understanding.” Starting with the faith we have been given, particularly in the Anglican tradition, we seek to go deeper into the things of God. The Adult Education program at Saint Thomas Church offers sound Christian teaching presented with intellectual vigor, teaching that is grounded in Holy Scripture, mediated by the catholic tradition that is the inheritance of Anglicanism and set forth in the Book of Common Prayer.

Theology is already deeply embedded in our worship; through the education program we offer a means to bring people more deeply into the Christian faith. The program offers a variety of courses with special emphasis on the biblical doctrine of God and the meaning of being human.

With Father Austin beginning a new ministry in Texas, and the commencement of Daniel Hyde’s ministry as Director of Music, as well as the other summer plans of the clergy, there will be no Sunday Adult Education program during the summer. During this break, a new Adult Education Committee, chaired by Professor Jeremy Waldron, will begin its meetings and plan for the future. We shall renew our educational programs in the fall, and more details will be posted on the website and via email groups in due course.

If you are interested in further adult education and fellowship opportunities at Saint Thomas please consider Father Spurlock's weekly Bible study.
