Directorate of Education and Training/ Board of Education

The Anglican Church of Kenya has over the years been actively involved in the education sector across the country. This has been so through the establishment of Schools, paying for the education of needy students, Productions of Education and liturgical material for use in Churches, training of clergy and sending chaplains to schools. All these are aimed at ensuring holistic development of Individuals.

It has various several Departments that help establish a framework for the Church’s engagement in the education sector. The departments also mandated to produce materials like Hymn Books, lectionaries and other Christian Literature; to be used in Churches and educational institutions to ensure that the users are well grounded the Christian faith and Anglican Tradition.  The Board also ensures that clergy are well trained and equipped to preach the gospel. Through the Chaplaincy program, Church through the Board seeks to provide the Christian models of service in various public and private sectors like the Military, cooperate and health sectors.

The departments are:

  • The Department of Education
  • The Anglican Universities and colleges.

Divinity Training.

In 1889 evangelists and church teachers began to be trained in the Divinity School at Freretown under the headship of Mr. Fitch. Later the course for school teachers was set up in a separate institution. A boys’ hostel was set up in Freretown and in 1904 Buxton High School was opened for Indian and African boys. It was what we should now call a primary school. Deimler was the first student of the Divinity School to be ordained. Jones and Semler had preceded him in the ministry and passed the examination set by Bishop Hannington. They had been educated in India and had learned pastoral work through years of practice.

From the earliest days of the mission CMS London pressed for the training of African clergy and bishops. They did not seem to realize the obstacles the missionaries faced. Literacy was 'a new idea to the converts. They came from different clans and communities with variations of dialect if not of language. Accepted forms of seniority and rank could cause problems.

Theological Training within the Anglican Church has experienced tremendous growth through the many theological Institutions that have been established over the years to accommodate the educational needs of both the church and the society at large.
