‘All things Anglican’ with Revd Dr Marcus Throup

Tue 2 April 2024 Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm

The Keene Lectures discuss contemporary theological issues and are delivered annually at Chelmsford Cathedral. They take their name from John Henry Keene, a prominent citizen of Chelmsford, in whose memory a fund was established to bring distinguished speakers to Chelmsford for this purpose. 

The title of Marcus’ lecture is ‘All things Anglican’ and Marcus published an introductory work with this title in 2018. Marcus has a special interest in Global Anglicanism having experienced it over the past twenty five years in South America, Africa, North America and here at home. Recently, as one of a team of global theologians he was involved in the Anglican Communion Office’s ‘Being Anglican’ project, but insists that he is “no expert” on Anglicanism, being keen to learn from others who bring diverse perspectives and particular experiences of the worldwide Anglican Communion.”

Revd Dr Marcus Throup is Centre Director of St Mellitus College London and a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Winchester. Marcus previously spent 15 years in parish ministry and theological education in Brazil where he met and married Tamara, they have two bilingual children and came to the UK in 2016. Before moving to St Mellitus Marcus was Diocesan Director of Ordinands and then led the local training course in the Diocese of Winchester, having previously served briefly at St John’s College, Nottingham following his PhD in New Testament studies. When not preparing lectures or marking assignments Marcus will be found watching football (from Premier League to his son’s junior team!) or casting a line down at the riverbank.
