Exploring Mission in Scotland Today
The nature of Christian mission in Scotland is changing rapidly. It’s a time for discussion, exploration and experimentation, and a dialogue between theological reflection and the experience of practitioners has never been more important.
This conference will provide a forum for debate across theological boundaries. It offers the chance to hear diverse voices and will widen perspectives, affirming the work of those at the frontiers of mission in Scotland today.
Our plenary speakers are Dr Wesley White, Lecturer at the Scottish School of Christian Mission and leader at the Upper Room church in Glasgow, and Rev Ian Galloway, parish minister in the Gorbals, Glasgow, and former Convener of the Church and Society Council of the Church of Scotland.
Seminar speakers include Alison Urie (Vox Liminis, Glasgow), Rev Malcolm Round (Rector, St Mungo's Episcopal Church, Balerno), Pam Mellstrom (Youth and Community Work Programme Manager, Scottish School of Christian Mission and former manager of Linlithgow Young People's Project), Catriona Fletcher (Ignatian Spirituality Centre, Glasgow), Dave Close (Hot Chocolate, Dundee), and the Very Rev Albert Bogle (former Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland), among others.
Worship and reflection through art will be provided throughout the day by Lou Davis, Edinburgh Dreams (a pioneer venture of the Methodist Church).
Lunch and refreshments are included in the conference price.
