The Warden

The Reverend Dr Gregory Seach commenced as Warden of Wollaston Theological College in January 2015.

As Warden, Dr Seach is the senior officer of the College and is responsible to the Board, and through the Board to the Archbishop, for the academic, strategic and liturgical leadership of the College, as well as the good management of its administration, finances, admissions, pastoral care and discipline.  He is charged to foster the innovative leadership and vision necessary to develop and strengthen the College’s position in the field of theological education, formation and training; thereby being a key catalyst for enabling the Diocesan Mission, as articulated in the ‘Mission Plan – Daring to live God’s promises’.  The Warden is also to be a faithful leader within the liturgical life of the College offering space for prayer and worship to the community both within and around the College.

An Anglican priest, Gregory's previous role was as the Dean of Clare College, Cambridge where he was responsible for the conduct of services in the College Chapel, and had a pastoral role among the Fellows, staff, students (undergraduate and graduate) and all members of the College. Gregory was also a Fellow of Clare College, and Director of Studies in Theology and Religious Studies.

Born and raised in Sydney, Gregory’s first degree was in English Literature from the University of Sydney. He then taught English, History and Drama for ten years at Trinity Grammar School in Sydney, before moving to Melbourne to begin theological study at Trinity College through the Melbourne College of Divinity. Gregory was ordained and served his curacy in the Diocese of Melbourne.  He headed to Clare College as Decani Scholar in 2007 where his PhD studies combined his two ‘former lives’ with studies in theology and literature. He was appointed Dean of Clare College in 2008.
