FeAST - Fellowship of Anglican Scholars of Theology


“Feast is an open table, a space of mutual challenge and sharing through which a new community of Anglican scholars engaged in the academic pursuit of theology can be built.”

Rev'd Canon Dr Peniel Rajkumar. USPG Global Theologian 


As part of our continuing commitment to stimulate, support and strengthen theological engagement across the Anglican Communion, USPG has launched a global forum of scholars engaged in theological research and education. 

FeAST seeks to be a fellowship that will facilitate encounter between Anglican scholars, as well as exchange of current theological thinking and research, and serve as an instrument for building up Anglican scholars and scholarship marked by creativity, critical-edge and courage. 

Global Anglicanism holds boundless theological wealth, much of which is often not sufficiently shared across (and beyond) the Anglican Communion. There are several reasons for this, some of which include lack of access to and opportunity for networking, academic publishing, and participation in global academic forums. These obstacles, stem from and in turn sustain, historical imbalances in global theological scholarship which has for long privileged and accorded normative status to theologies and theological methods which have a Eurocentric bias.

Conscious of these challenges we will aim to address them by:

  • Building a platform for discussion and dissemination of current research. 
  • Creating ‘academic solidarities’ by establishing an intergenerational and international platform of mutual mentoring and support that is intentional about overcoming the ‘opportunities divide’. 
  • Resource sharing – student and faculty exchange, visiting lectureships, sabbatical opportunities, curricula, research skills and possibilities for collaboration.

Our ultimate aim for the global forum is to resource the Anglican Communion in the vocation of theological research and education from a standpoint of mutual learning.

“I am delighted to see the launch of FeAST. This is a fantastic initiative with the potential to transform the life of the Anglican Communion.” 

“Our Christian life is renewed by the Spirit moving freely in the Church that we may respond more fully in service to a hurting world, whose people ache for justice and peace, liberation and compassion. That renewal involves a transforming of our imaginations; a deepening of our theologies. I warmly welcome this Fellowship - bringing together young Anglican Scholars across God’s world for creative and critical theological engagement, mutual learning and encouragement. The Church is at its most fruitful when it is a joyful, learning community grounded in love of one another with Christ at the heart. May its cup overflow into the life of the Communion.” 

Rev’d Dr Duncan Dormor, General Secretary USPG
