The contours of a secular age, as delineated by classical and contemporary sociologists of religion, have tended to result in secularising trajectories for church-founded institutions of Higher Education, some of which have migrated towards secular normativity. This article explores these trends and then proposes five characteristics of an Anglican and inclusively Christian ethos that remain viable, credible and attractive for a twenty-first century university. Although there is naturally much overlap between this ethos and contemporary humanistic ideals, the article proposes a continuing contribution, reflexive but assured, that Christian universities can make within the international marketplace of higher education.
