Anglicanism has historically had a large vision of the Church and its place within it. The Anglican story includes influences from, and an affinity with, the best of the Celtic, Roman Catholic, and Orthodox churches, as well as, the Reformed, Evangelical, Charismatic, and healthy Liberal traditions.
The Anglican Way has always been to seek a comprehensive ‘Via Media’ (Middle Way) that includes the best of all traditions.
The cultural context that the Church finds itself in today is one of pluralism, historic amnesia, theological thinness, and individualism, which frequently leads to divisiveness. This context creates confusion. Saint Matthew’s School of Anglican Life and Ministry (SOALAM) offers courses to help you learn, grow and serve based upon solid grounding in Holy Scripture. In achieving this we will glorify Jesus Christ by joyfully proclaiming ‘ancient faith for today’s world’.
