Greetings from Cornhill Scotland. With the 2015/16 session approaching the half-way mark let me bring you up to date with news of Cornhill. As ever, we have much to be thankful to God for.

In this, the 10TH YEAR OF CORNHILL SCOTLAND, it is encouraging to have a total of 28 students currently enrolled on our courses, and it is exciting to see opportunities for Gospel ministry and further training starting to open up for those who will be finishing this year. It is hard to believe that we have been in our new building for almost a year – for those of you who missed the inspiring address given by Dick Lucas at the official opening of the building last summer follow this link to watch it now.

Our Cornhill Training Day entitled ‘HIS WORD IN MY HANDS’ is planned for Saturday 19th March. It is a day of bible-handling training for those who teach the Bible in a range of different settings. Please encourage people to come along to this – the flyer can be downloaded here, and bookings can be made online on our website.

Plans are well under way for the ‘SERVANTS OF THE WORD CONFERENCE’ from 14th -16th June, where Richard Pratt and Christopher Ash will be the main speakers along with Dick Lucas and William Philip. Booking forms for this will be available on our website by the end of February.

The PASTORS’ TRAINING COURSE students have recently been encouraged by two outstanding residential study weeks with David Jackman in the Autumn and Simon Manchester in January. It has been encouraging to see those who have have recently completed this course moving on to full time pastorates – most recently Oli Ward who has become the Minister of Emmanuel Baptist Church, Sidmouth, and Rupert Hunt-Taylor who will become the Minister of Edinburgh North Church in August.
