(ACNS) Young Anglican Women Scholars meet in Canterbury

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Emergent Anglican women scholars from the majority world and indigenous women studying theology gathered on March 26 at the International Study Centre at Canterbury Cathedral for a week-long program of mentoring and strategising with the leaders of the Global Anglican Theological Academy (GATA).

GATA was one of the outcomes of the meeting of Anglican women theological educators organized by the office of Theological Education in the Anglican Communion (TEAC) in Canterbury, England, in 2009.
