Professor Andrew Walker
Emeritus Professor of Theology, Culture & Education
I am at present 'theologian in residence' at St James C of England parish, in Weybridge, Surrey. I am primarily involved in an advisory role in methods of theological education for lay people (although I have also been in consultation with the clergy). I have also taken a day's retreat for the retired clergy of Surrey who were a sophisticated group as the presence of Professor David Martin (emeritus Prof of sociology, LSE) indicates.
Present research interests:
