At the end of 2012, The Rt. Rev. Bill Musk, then Area Bishop of North Africa, and members of St. George’s Anglican Church in Tunis, in the presence of The Most Rev. Dr. Mouneer Anis, the Diocesan Bishop, officially launched the “Legacy Project” for the training and formation of emerging church leaders, community outreach and providing hospitality. The “Legacy Project” was later renamed the “St. Cyprian Centre” when it was decided that for the theological training of future leaders of the North African Anglican communities, they needed to provide new facilities on its grounds which would include onsite training of local leaders, and allow them to bring students from other countries in North Africa to study in Tunis.
In March of 2018, the Alexandria School of Theology (AST) launched the Bachelor of Theology Program, and enrolled sixteen students from Algeria and Tunisia. Bishop Samy, AST Principal, and Engr. Shady Anis, AST Academic Coordinator, taught courses on Ecclesiology and Trinity respectively over five days at the St. Cyprian Campus at St. George’s Church in Tunis.
