ST MARK’S CENTER

BACKGROUND

St Marks Centre was launched in September 2009 as a Centre of the already established St John's University of Tanzania. The Centre is situated at Buguruni- Malapa, Dar es Salaam, about five kilometers from Julius Nyerere International Airport. For many decades, St Mark's Theological College, the site of St Mark’s Centre, has been the training and formation centre for priests for the Anglo-Catholic dioceses of the Anglican Church of Tanzania. Most, if not all, current and past bishops and other senior clergy of these dioceses are alumni of St Mark’s Theological College. As a theological college, St Mark’s has also trained clergy from neighbouring countries.

The decision by the Anglican Church of Tanzania to make St Mark's Theological College a SJUT St Mark’s Centre, was intended to tap on the huge number of potential students, given the very convenient location of St Mark’s. Behind this decision was in fact the realization of the great potential for St Mark’s Centre to become a constituent college of St John’s University and, subsequently, a fully-fledged autonomous university or affiliate college. This is still the vision and the intention.

St Mark’s Centre, located at the St Mark’s Theological College, is an institution of particular significance for the Anglican Church of Tanzania. The Anglican Church of Tanzania is blessed with the two main traditions of the Church, namely, the evangelical tradition, commonly known as Low Church, or CMS, and the Anglo-Catholic tradition, commonly known as High Church, or UMCA. St Mark’s Centre is the historical academic and ministry formation centre for the Anglo-Catholic tradition. St Mark’s is a needed entity for broader witness and work of the Church in Tanzania and beyond.  

LOCATION

The Centre is situated at Buguruni-Malapa, about five (5) kilometres from Julius Nyerere International Airport, thus a very convenient site suitable for pursuing studies literary at any time of the day.

VISION

S Mark’s Centre advances the vision of the rest of St John’s University of Tanzanua, that is, being a Christian university of global standards developing humankind holistically to learn to serve.

MISSION

To assume responsibility for providing and maintaining high quality education and training in the theological, social, scientific and technological disciplines. The Anglican Church of Tanzania aims to increase access to University education in Tanzania, by giving more young people the opportunity of higher education.
