The Revd Antony Clarke

Tutorial Fellow in Pastoral Studies and Community Learning


I am a Baptist Minister, training here at Regent’s Park after a first degree in classics, and I have had pastorates on the borders of East London and here in Oxford. At College I share in overseeing of those training to be Baptist Ministers, am Course Director for the Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Biblical and Theological Studies, and also liaise with churches within a wide geographical area, seeking to use the resources of College to encourage leaning and training in ministry and mission for the whole church. I am a member of John Bunyan Baptist Church in Cowley and moderate the Leaders’ Days Task Group in the Southern Counties Baptist Association

My research sought to bring together New Testament Studies and Systematic Theology within a pastoral setting, and within College and beyond I teach in all three areas. In particular I have interests in the Gospel of Mark, questions of divine suffering, and Baptist life and practice.
