When the Bible is taught, God’s voice is heard. It is vital, therefore, that those who teach others are equipped to handle God’s Word well.

Whether you teach Sunday school, lead a small group Bible study, give talks at a camp or holiday club, lead student work, or are thinking of doing a ministry apprenticeship, this Cornhill Scotland Training Day will provide an introduction to the basic principles of how to handle the Bible correctly.

Building on last year's training day, the theme will be 'Teaching the Gospel from the Gospels' - which will help us apply Bible-handling skills to the Gospels of Mark and John. Whether you attended last year or this is your firs time, you are welcome to come along to this day.

An Expositors' Conference for active Ministers and those training for Biblical Ministry

Tuesday 13th - Thursday 15th June, 2017

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.

Our main speaker this year will be Peter Adam, who is retired Principal of Ridley College, Melbourne, and previously was Vicar of St Jude’s, Carlton. He is author of many books, including Speaking God’s Words, an outstanding practical theology of preaching.
