As our new term at Cornhill Scotland is now well underway in this New Year, let me bring you up to date with our news.

PASTORS’ TRAINING COURSE RESIDENTIAL WITH RICHARD PRATT

It was great to have Richard with us again from Third Millennium Ministries, along with his co-worker Andrew Lamb. We had a week of intensive study of the Old Testament Prophets – having previously studied on-line the Third Mill module ‘He Gave us Prophets’. We were glad that a good number of those who have completed PTC recently were able to come back and join us for the week as ongoing training (see picture below).

CORNHILL SCOTLAND & WEST OF SCOTLAND GOSPEL PARTNERSHIP TRAINING FOR PASTORAL MINISTRY, BREAKFAST MEETING

This was a great opportunity to present and discuss the recent developments in PTC. We were encouraged by the wide range of church leaders who attended and by the interest that was expressed in PTC. Below are YouTube links to the two excellent talks and a link to download the newly launched PTC prospectus:

CORNHILL MISSION WEEKS

Our Cornhill students have had 3 weeks back in class, and during the next couple of weeks they will be involved, as small teams, in missions in a variety of churches across Scotland including Cumnock Congregational Church, Holyrood Evangelical Church, Perth Free Church, Seagate Evangelical Church, Hope Church – Blackwood and Kirkmuirhill, Kilmaurs United Free Church, Harper Church, and a number are involved with CU missions at Aberdeen, St Andrews and Dundee.

HIS WORD IN MY HANDS

Saturday 10th March in Dundee (Central Baptist Church) and Saturday 17th March in Glasgow. These days are for those who teach Sunday school, lead small group Bible studies, give talks at camps or holiday clubs, lead student work, or are thinking of doing a ministry apprenticeship. Further details and a booking form are available on our website.

SERVANTS OF THE WORD

The dates for Servants of the Word are 5th – 7th June, 2018, slightly earlier than in recent years. We look forward to welcoming Simon Manchester from Sydney, Australia, as the main speaker. The booking form and further details will be on the website soon.

PLEASE PRAY FOR:

  • Cornhill Mission Weeks (4th -18th Feb)
  • Edward Lobb who is recovering from a bad dose of the flu
  • Applications for CTC and PTC for the coming year, 2018-19.

Thank you for your interest and prayers,

Charles Alford, Director of Operations
