Edinburgh Theological Seminary (ETS) will hold an opening service to mark the beginning of a new academic semester on Monday 4th September at 7:30 pm in St Columba's Free Church, Edinburgh.
The service will be chaired by the Principal, Rev. Iver Martin, with Rev. Robin Sydserff, minister of Chalmers Church, Edinburgh, due to give the opening address.
The opening service will also be an opportunity to welcome back returning students as well as introduce new students as they begin their studies.
This year the seminary welcomes three more Free Church ministry candidates bringing the total currently training to 15.
As well as the full-time academic courses, ETS have seen popularity grow in the Saturday courses they offer. These are designed to allow people with an interest in theology to fit study into their busy schedule.
ETS Principal Iver Martin said, "As always this is a special time for the ETS staff. We welcome the new students as well as those who are returning to continue their studies and hope that we enjoy the same sense of unity and harmony as we have enjoyed in past years".
Please pray that staff and students would know the directing hand of God as they continue to prepare for a life-long mission of serving the Lord.
All are welcome to attend.
