Learn: Understanding Our Faith Conference

A Great Learning and Development Opportunity
For Everyday Believers
For a Deeper and Clearer Understanding of Christian Faith

This Learn day conference on the theme of the new Learn: Understanding Our Faith publication aims to encourage everyday believers to reflect upon what they believe and hope and to grow in confidence as they seek to share their faith in daily life.

Six core issues of Christian life will be explored in a modest yet tangible way:

  • God, How do I know Him?
  • Jesus, What does He have to do with Me?
  • The Holy Spirit, Who is He?
  • What is Church for anyway?
  • What’s the Point of Discipleship?
  • How will I know if I’m going to Heaven?

Contributors to the publication will deliver talks and lead open discussions:

  • Frances Henderson (Minister of Hoddom, Kirtle-Eaglesfield and Middlebie Parish Church)
  • Paul T Nimmo (King’s Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Aberdeen)
  • Sarah Lane Ritchie (Research Fellow in Theology and Science at the University of St Andrews)
  • Alexander Forsyth (Tutor in Practical Theology at the University of Glasgow and Associate Minister at Bearsden Cross Parish Church)
  • Jan Mathieson (Minister of Williamwood Parish Church)
  • Andrew Torrance (Lecturer in Theology at the University of St Andrews)

Alison Jack (Assistant Principal of New College at the University of Edinburgh) and Angus Morrison (Minister of Orwell and Portmoak Parish Church) will also deliver the opening and closing remarks at the conference.

A free copy of the Learn: Understanding Our Faith publication will be presented to all delegates. This will be a great opportunity for you and others in your congregation to be connected, resourced and inspired. Do come and join us for a day of exploration and discovery!
