How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! (Ps 119 v 103)
Dunblane High School
Saturday 27th August, 10.00am – 4.15pm
✝ How can the Church grow?
✝ How can growth come about in local churches?
✝ How can we grow as Christians?
✝ And how can the Bible help in such growth & provide us with the food & nourishment we need?
During the day we’ll be looking at what the Bible has to say about growth and in a number of the workshops we’ll be hearing from people who are seeing growth happening in a variety of ways in the situations they are in.
The event will begin with an opening session from 10.00 – 11.30. We are delighted that Adrian Armstrong, Head of Bible Engagement with the Scottish Bible Society, will be the main speaker and he will help us reflect on what the Bible has to say on the theme of growth both for individuals and for the Church. This session will also include praise & worship and other input. Following this there will be a series of workshops from 11.40 – 12.40 and which will be repeated from 1.45 – 2.45. Then we will have the closing Celebration from 3.15 – 4.15.
The day will also see the launch of a new partnership with Tearfund to support village development work through local churches in Cambodia. We will have with us several of those who are due to visit the project earlier in August and they will share with us some of their experiences.
There will again be a display of books and other resources available for sale. There will also be a display by a number of Christian agencies giving information on their work in different parts of the world and in Scotland. We are again meeting in Dunblane High School, with bright modern, spacious facilities mostly on one level and with a lift to the upper floor.
