Theological Education for the Anglican Communion (TEAC), an initiative set up by the Primates of the Communion, has outlined the “competencies” that it believes people engaged in various forms of ministry and discipleship should have at different stages in their formation.
During a discussion on Theological Education at the February 2019 meeting of the Synod of Bishops, it was recommended that a grid which sets out what training in the Anglican Way is appropriate and necessary for different forms of ministry should be published here.
Clicking on this link will take you to a page where you can download a PDF file of the grid entitled Webpage-1: https://anglicanchurchsa.org/competencies-for-ministry-teac/webpage-1/

PRAYER FOR PROVINCIAL PRESIDENT ELECTION (Mothers’ Union)
Lord God, We praise you and give thanks
For all the blessings you have showered upon us for the past years as the Provincial MU.
We come before your throne of grace for guidance by the Holy Spirit, as we are preparing for the elections of the new leadership.
We thank you for our dear sisters,
Maria van Staden and Nokuzola Nopece for accepting nominations and for their families.
We pray for discernment so that we may choose leaders who hear your Word,
live your love and keep in the ways of your truth.
We also pray for the delegates who will be bringing the voices of ALL the members,
That they may deliberate and discuss matters that will change the lives of people.
In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
A SOUTHERN AFRICAN MULTILINGUAL HYMN COLLECTION
Full music edition @ R100
A collection of new and old hymns for the various seasons of the Church year.
also for Morning and evening Prayer, Baptism, Confirmation, Ordination, Weddings, etc. etc.
from the Editor: “it seemed counterproductive to create something which would supplant existing vernacular and imported hymnals which already formed an integral part of mainstream worship. Instead it seemed best to fill the gaps providing existing hymns by local authors that are perhaps not widely available…..This collection in no way claims to represent the fullness of Southern Africa theological, musical, textual and cultural styles. It simply aims to represent aspects of our diverse reality”. .. AJ Bethke
