About Vincent Strudwick
 
Canon Vincent Strudwick played an early and pivotal role in the forging of an institutional affiliation in the 1990’s between the GTF and the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education.  He served for many years as Director of the Department's annual Oxford Theology Summer School.  He has stated that although “emeritus and no longer able to contribute actively, I continue to value and support the work of GTF and the opportunities it has created for those involved in ministry, am grateful to the Foundation for this annual lecture, and delighted that the Summer Theology Program at Christ Church continues under the Directorship of Canon Angela Tilby.”
