The Australasian Centre for Wesleyan Research promotes and supports research on the life, work and times of John and Charles Wesley, their historical and theological antecedents, their successors in the Wesleyan tradition, and contemporary scholarship in the Wesleyan tradition. This includes areas such as theology, biblical studies, history, education, ethics, literature, mission, cultural studies, philosophy, pastoral studies, worship, preaching, practical theology, and social theology.
Currently the ACWR is a working partnership formed by a number of Wesleyan theological institutions. They are:
- Nazarene Theological College (Church of the Nazarene, based in Brisbane, Australia)
- Kingsley Australia (Wesleyan Methodist, based in Melbourne, Australia)
- Booth College (Salvation Army, based in Sydney, Australia)
- Catherine Booth College (Salvation Army, based in Melbourne)
- Booth College of Mission (Salvation Army, based in Wellington, New Zealand)
- Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary (Church of the Nazarene, based in Manila, Philippines)
Each centre provides quality resources for students and researchers in this field. We are actively seeking to enlarge our range of partners throughout Australia and New Zealand, as well as further afield.
