Overview & Objectives

In keeping with “upholding our Anglican identity” (part of Our Mission) the School of Anglicanism seeks to enrich Diocesan leaders’ and members’ understanding of the history, theology, liturgy, and church order of the Anglican Church, help them develop a reflective understanding of these, and inspire an appreciation for the strengths, resources and beauty of the Anglican church. 

Anglicanism is not reducible down to any one founder or set of claims. That means that defining Anglicanism is a complex task. This complexity also means that humility is called for in those attempting to understand it, and those who know only a little about Anglicanism are in greater danger of misunderstanding and misrepresenting it than those who know nothing about it.

SOA seeks to impart to leaders in the Diocese the tools to navigate the complexities of our Anglican heritage, and increase their confidence in the understated robustness of our spirituality.



In 2022, the Anglican Lay Training started Rediscovering the Anglican Church course with teachings on the Morning Office.

For 2023 we are offering:

Rediscovering The Anglican Church – Our History

Facilitators: Revd Canon Terry Wong and Pas Gabriel Justin

23rd February till 30th March 2023 (over 6 Thursdays)

7.45 pm – 9.30pm via Zoom

This module on Our History will explore the events leading to the English Reformation in 16th century England, their enduring impact, and the on-going renewal movements which led to the growth of the worldwide Anglican communion today. We will also review the spread of Anglican Mission to Southeast Asia; in particular Singapore. We will be drawing out many rich and inspiring lessons that can help us to navigate through changing times as members of our Anglicans parishes.

Rediscovering the Anglican Church (RTAC) is a lay training course under St Peter’s Hall School of Anglicanism. It comprises various modules to help us to appreciate what God has done through the Anglican Church and to rediscover her timeless treasures, gifts, and graces. They will also lead us to be more faithful to the rich disciplines of prayer, worship, mission and societal engagement that are part of our heritage and our living legacy.
