Servants of the Word is a 3 day, non-residential conference, focussed on the practical tasks involved in the hard work of the staple of ministry: bible exposition and application.

The Conference is for active ministers, as well as those in training for ministry, and others in full-time bible teaching roles. It will be held at the premises of Cornhill Scotland and The Tron Church, at 31 and 25 Bath Street, Glasgow.


We are glad to welcome back again from Australia Peter Adam, to give keynote addresses on Biblical Wisdom. The bible teaches that we need to be wise for salvation, we need wisdom for living, wisdom in relationships, and we most certainly need great wisdom in ministry! Peter will lead our thinking on this important subject.

Andy Gemmill will give three expositions for expositors, opening up the book of Ephesians in order to help us to understand it and be able to teach its message better to others.

Dick Lucas hopes to join us once again to share his unique contribution of biblical clarity, wit and the wisdom of a lifetime in ministry. Dick will give a Conference Address and lead a workshop.

The conference will be hosted by William Philip, who will also give the Conference Sermon.


There will be expository workshops aimed at getting to grips with a book of the bible, or theme, working together to fuel our preaching and teaching for the future, led by:

  • Peter Adam:    Preaching Ezra
  • Andy Gemmill:    Preaching Ephesians 
  • Dick Lucas:    John’s Gospel 
  • Edward Lobb:    Preaching 2 Peter 
  • Robin Sydserff:    Preaching Nehemiah 
  • Paul Clarke:    Preaching Matthew
  • Craig Dyer & Alan McKnight:    Preaching James
  • Agnes Brough:    Romans 1-4
  • Rachel Sloan:    Romans 8

The conference also affords ample opportunity for fellowship and prayer - time together over food to talk, share and pray together about our ministries.


The cost of the conference is £125 which includes lunch and all refreshments.
