Denominational News

Home Missions Board update

The Home Missions Board met on Wednesday to discuss the mission work in congregations across Scotland. A number of developments included: approving the appointment of Paul Clarke as a church worker to St Andrews, plans for a youth camps fundraising weekend in June and the recommendation of ministry provision in East Kilbride and Sleat and Strath for a further three years – both of which will now go to May’s General Assembly for ratification.

International Missions Board update

The International Missions Board also met this week. It was noted that Clive and Ruth Bailey, who were working at the Colegio San Andres in Peru, will return home to Scotland on April 2, and they are expected to visit several Free Church congregations over the coming months.

Moderator visits South Africa

The Moderator is currently visiting South Africa and will return on 13 March. Rev Dr Iain D Campbell has met with missionaries and ministry students, and was the special guest speaker at Dumisani Theological Institute’s annual awards ceremony. Follow updates from the visit on the Free Church website.

Rev David Robertson appears on Channel 4

Rev David Robertson appeared on Channel 4 on Tuesday evening, discussing why Britain does not need atheist churches. The minister of St Peter’s Free Church in Dundee and director of the Solas Centre for Public Christianity said the term ‘atheist church’ was an oxymoron, because a church is based around Jesus Christ and belief in God. You can watch his slot again via the Free Church website.
