Andrew has been Director of St Mark’s National Theological Centre in Canberra since 2014 after several years on the faculty of Moore Theological College in Sydney. His academic interests are in ethics and theology, and he teaches in the Ageing and Pastoral Studies program with the Charles Sturt University School of Theology. His short book, Living in the Next Phase: Developing the Theology, Practice and Ministries of Later Life (Sydney: Anglican Deaconess Ministries, 2014), looks at how to age and minister well, from the perspective of the Bible’s story.
Andrew has been a priest in the Anglican Church of Australia since 1993, and has had pastoral experience in a variety of Anglican and other denominational settings. He has also taught in ethics, social ethics, political and public theology, theological anthropology, theology and philosophy at a range of levels and institutions. His doctoral research interest was in a theological account of the relationship of ethics to emotion, and since then he has several other topics at the intersection of theology, ethics and public life.
Andrew is married to Mary-Anne, and they’ve replaced two adult children, Amy and Thomas, with two fluffy border collies, Wally and Colah. Their first grandchild arrived in mid-2019. Andrew’s latest hobby has been to create a veggie patch so vast, it is known as ‘Vegetable Park’.
