"The global relations program currently has intentional church-to-church relationships in other provinces and dioceses, including the Episcopal Church of Cuba, the Anglican Church of Melanesia, churches in the Philippines, the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem and the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa, says [Dr. Andrea] Mann [global relations co-ordinator], whose work falls within the primate's office under the area of mission and justice. A central aspect of global relations has always been the international theological education scholarship program. 'Out partners have told us that theological education in the Anglican tradition and the development of academic leadership in the provinces continue to be very important priorities for them', says Mann. A recent anonymous bequest of $160,000 for global relations and theological education will facilitate the support of overseas scholars". "Halfway around the world, in the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, the program appointed the Rev. John Organ, a retired Canadian Forces padre, as chaplain at the request of Bishop Suheil Dawani. The program will cover Organ's stipend for three years as he supports Bishop Dawani in his daily ministry in the troubled Holy Land. In the West Bank, the program aids the Penman Clinic, a medical centre that treats as many as 3,000 people a month in Zababdeh, one of the few remaining Christian villages in the region. 'We fund the purchase of medicines and the maintenance of equipment', says Mann".

"The following pages contain what I sincerely hope is a fair account of the Anglican Congress of 1963. In addition to the sermons and formal addresses, reproduced in as accurate and definitive a form as time and circumstances permit. I have included both the group 'findings' as officially reported to the full Congress and a wide selection of informal speeches and comments made in the plenary sessions or sent in from the groups. I have also attempted a brief preliminary interpretation of the Congress as I saw it and felt its impact. It was the express wish of the Editorial Committee that the record of the Toronto Congress should include these elements of personal reporting and commentary and I have tried to carry out my assignment without worrying unduly about the criticisms that such an impressionistic account must necessarily invite". -- Preface, p. xv.

"This document has emerged as part of a four-year process in which church leaders, theologians and educators have come together from around the world to discuss the teaching of Anglican identity, life and practice. They clarified the characteristic ways in which Anglicans understand themselves and their mission in the world. These features, described as the 'Anglican Way', were intended to form the basis for how Anglicanism is taught at all levels of learning involving laity, clergy and bishops. This document is not intended as a comprehensive definition of Anglicanism, but it does set in place sign-posts which guide Anglicans on their journey of self-understanding and Christian discipleship".
The document consists of 16 numbered paragraphs organized into four main sections: Formed by Scripture, Shaped through Worship, Ordered by Communion and Directed by God's Mission. Document signed: TEAC Anglican Way Consultation, Singapore, May 2007.
The new Centre for Anglican Communion Studies (CEFACS) opened 1 December 1992 at Selly Oak in Birmingham. "The emphasis of the one-year CEFACS programme is on learning through experience and sharing with one another. ... The participants study Anglican history and tradition for the light that it can shed on their own church and the Anglican church today. The syllabus calls it `studying history in reverse'." "The second term of the programme is devoted to `issues facing the Anglican church today'. For many Anglican churches the question of inculturation is a controversial issue." "Another key issue facing many of the participants is mission in the Decade of Evangelism".

"The Michael Ramsey Prize, which is being sponsored by the Lambeth Fund and administered by SPCK, commemorates the centenary of the birth of Michael Ramsey, the 100th Archbishop of Canterbury. The 15,000 [pounds sterling] award will recognise a published new work which, in the opinion of the judges, is saying `something new and compelling at the cutting edge of Christian thinking and that will make a serious contribution to the faith and life of the Church'." The first award will be presented in the summer of 2004. The Most Rev. Rowan Williams, the present Archbishop of Canterbury, who has said that theological education is one of his priorities, will be one of the judges.
In the summer of 1995 twenty-six students from thirteen Anglican colleges, all members of the Colleges and Universities of the Anglican Communion (CUAC), joined together for a two-month programme of study and service in the Philippines. In July 1995, CUAC sponsored a pilgrimage of college students from many difference Anglican colleges to the monastery at Taize in France. Two newly founded Anglican colleges, Sungkonghoe University of Seoul, Korea (formerly St. Michael's Theological College) and the Universite Jacques Theodore Holly in Haiti, have joined the other 104 members of CUAC.
The Universite Jacques Theodore Holly in Port au Prince, Haiti is sponsored primarily by the Anglican Church of Canada.
Heads of Anglican universities and colleges from around the world met in Canterbury to inaugurate the Colleges and Universities of the Anglican Communion (CUAC). Canadians Charles Jago, Robert Painter and Don Thompson attended.
It was noted that the work of the Church Army has not been touched upon in the Report, and the Primate said that, at recent meetings with the Metropolitans, it has been agreed that conversations should be initiated with the Church Army about its future.
That this National Executive Council ask the Committee on Ministry to take steps to establish an inter-diocesan Theological Education Committee to coordinate and accredit Theological Education programmes of individual dioceses who have diocesan clergy schools for native postulants for ministry. CARRIED
The hope was expressed that such a Committee would ensure liaison with the Churches of South America, who have developed some interesting and exciting patterns for ministry among native peoples.
