Positively Presbyterian 2019 Conference

August 6, 2019

The annual Positively Presbyterian conference takes place at Lendrick Muir, Perthshire in two weeks time on the 19th August. 

Around 50 delegates from across Scotland are expected to attend the three-day event, which aims to equip and develop church leadership.
As well as the talks, Positively Presbyterian is very popular for its fellowship and social activities and attracts like-minded ministers from different denominations.

The opening session of the conference will be led by Free Church of Scotland Mission Director Rev. David Meredith.

On Tuesday, Cumbernauld minister Rev. Andy Longwe will deliver a talk on ‘Thomas Chalmers’, St Andrews minister in training Ciaran Kelleher discusses 'Contemporary Catholicism', Tearfund's Stuart Lee will explore 'The Church’s response to Disasters, Emergencies and Extreme Poverty?' and Adrian Armstrong from the Scottish Bible Society will finish the day looking at 'Healing the Wounds of Trauma.'

The two Wednesday sessions will be led by Overseas Missionary Fellowship (OMF) representative and Free Church minister Rev. Martin Patterson who will discuss 'God’s mission in a globalised world' and Dr Calum MacKellar of the Scottish Council on Human Bioethics who concludes the sessions with ‘Transhumanism and Posthumanism from a Christian perspective.’

All of the worship and devotional sessions will be led by Rev. Donnie G. MacDonald, who as well as being the current Free Church of Scotland Moderator is also minister of Portree and Bracadle Free Church.
