Speaker: Archbishop Glenn Davies


Speaker: Archbishop Glenn Davies

B.Sc. (Sydney) M.Div. (Hons 1) Th.M. (Hons 1) (Westminster) Dip A (Moore) Ph.D. (Sheffield) D.D. (Westminster)

Glenn Davies was a school teacher prior to his theological study at Westminster Theological Seminary and Moore Theological College. After two years in parish ministry at St Stephen’s Willoughby, Glenn was invited to join the faculty of Moore College as a lecturer in Old Testament. At the end of 1985 he took a two-year study leave in England where he gained his PhD from Sheffield University. Glenn returned from overseas in 1988 to take up a position as a lecturer in New Testament. In the following year he also became the Registrar of the College, holding both positions until his resignation in 1995, when he was appointed as rector of St Luke’s Miranda. Glenn left Miranda after being consecrated bishop in December 2001. He was the Bishop of North Sydney for more than ten years, before being overwhelmingly elected Archbishop in 2013.


About The Integral Project

The Integral Project was launched by EdComm in 2009 to promote the integration of faith and learning within schools. It was inspired by the very influential Charis Project that had been conducted by the Stapleford Centre in Nottingham for over a decade. Through that Project teachers in Britain acquired access to a plethora of booklets on how to teach the mandated curriculum Christianly.

The Integral Project promotes biblically-shaped education and is about translating a biblical worldview into every aspect of school life – whether it is an Indonesian lesson, a History lesson, a pastoral care program or an assessment task. Its focus has been on encouraging individual schools to initiate their own projects through which a biblically-based approach to education can be embedded within the culture of their schools.

It is called Integral for many reasons: it’s integral because it is indispensable to something being complete. Integral is about being whole, wholistic, not piecemeal or fragmented. The logo of The Integral Project reminds us that for education to flourish it must be rooted firmly in good soil.

The Integral Project does not offer simple, slick solutions. It provides a network of like-minded Christian educators, supporting one another to ‘light lots of little fires’ through which education can be a transformative force in Anglican schools.

The Integral Project provides encouragement to schools, Stage and faculty groups as well as individual teachers to initiate school-based projects which integrate Christian faith in an authentic manner with educational practice.

The high point for The Integral Project each year is the annual dinner at which schools have the opportunity to showcase the progress they have achieved. The Dinner quite rightly has been characterised as an occasion at which lots of little fires have been started.

Join us and be inspired. We look forward to seeing you on the evening.
