Re-Imagining Church Conference

Re-Imagining Church Conference

'Re-Imagining Church'  conference 11th-13th Jan 2019. While it will be an opportunity to reflect on how technology can assist the mission of the church, the conference will seek to revisit the guiding principles of the Church Without Walls Report. It will call for a change of mindset in the church, moving from central based leadership to local, inviting the church to return to its core calling, to Follow Jesus. Our keynote sessions will ask the following questions:

What does it mean to be a church... Shaped by the Gospel? Shaped by Friendship? Shaped by our Locale? Shaped by the Gifts of God’s People?

Robert Allan continues our theme Remembering God’s Faithfulness #DailyWorship

We thank Albert Bogle for his Daily Worship week and we welcome Robert S.T. Allan, minister of Falkirk Trinity Church of Scotland. Robert says it is "a congregation with all the trappings of traditional Church yet seeking a path of renewal to be a Christian presence in central Falkirk in years to come. Our Family Life Centre is developing, seeking to connect with the needs of our community. Through all we do we seek, with God’s help, to transform lives. I like to stir it, so I seek to be a voice for reform in the Church of Scotland, visit reformthechurchofscotland.org"

James looks back through the library #Blog

In a recent blog post James Cathcart from the team looks back at our October theme Living in the Library. "When we bring our favourite stories to the Bible, we bring different parts of *ourselves* to the Bible. Like our sense of humour, or our love of adventure, or our curiosity to investigate. The Bible is a densely packed, richly evocative treasure trove of language and story for a reason. These ancient words, gathered over hundreds of years and across many cultures and languages, are inviting us to engage with our head and heart - to bring our whole lives to the text..."
