Preaching from a Gospel challenges us to read with discernment, intelligence and sensitivity, listening to what God wishes to say to us uniquely through that Gospel, today. The College of Preachers is delighted to be working with several different church denominations in Scotland to present a day conference devoted to exploring the Gospel of Matthew, featured in Year A of the Common Worship Lectionary.
Come to learn from the latest critical NT scholarship, to be homiletically refreshed by the pictures and stories of Matthew, and to be challenged anew by the Word of God.
This day is a version of a highly successful event held for 3 years in Durham and last year in Edinburgh on Preaching from Luke.
The all-in price includes registration, refreshments and a buffet lunch. There will be soft drinks from 9.30 for a 10.00 start and we finish at 4.00 pm prompt.
