Six of our elders attended the Church of Scotland Elders Conference which was held at the Scottish Police College in Tulliallan from 27th – 29th April 2018. The theme which was Journey of Discipleship enabled us to connect, be resourced and inspired and it is fair to say that the keynote speakers and workshop leaders certainly did all three during this fantastic conference.
Throughout the three days there was a strong feeling of the need for change and the need for us to make connections between worship and the whole of life, seven days a week. We were challenged, motivated and asked to give prayerful thought to opportunities for change and to have faith in the risk of change.
During the programme we also took part in worship, reflection and prayer with a very moving communion service bringing the conference to a close.
