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.
