Revd. Dr Andrew Gregory

Research

My research focuses on the New Testament (especially the Gospels and Acts) and other early Christian literature (especially the Apostolic Fathers and non-canonical gospels).

I am currently working on a book on Jewish-Christian Gospels. I also co-edit two series of editions of early Christian texts: the Oxford Apostolic Fathers, and the Oxford Early Christian Gospel Texts.

Chaplain

There are two main components to the role of Chaplain: pastoral care, and oversight of the Chapel.

Dr Gregory is one of a number of officers who shares responsibility for welfare in Univ.  He is readily available to all members of the college and to its staff who are welcome to contact him at any time. The College has a very diverse community, and most of Dr Gregory’s work takes place in a context of pastoral support in which no assumptions are made as to whether individuals hold to any religious beliefs or to none.  His room is on Staircase 6, in the Main Quad.  The telephone number is 2-76663 and his e-mail address is andrew.gregory@univ.ox.ac.uk.  He lives nearby and can easily be contacted via the Porters’ Lodge if he is not in College.  If you wish to do so, you are welcome to call in socially, or talk to him in confidence at any time and on any matter.

Dr Gregory is also the Welfare Fellow. This means that he has a watching brief for the administration and development of welfare-related support, and that he oversees the Welfare Office.
