Colloquium for Office Bearers
The Colloquium is a gathering of the Presbytery’s office bearers and students for the ministry, for two days of lectures, discussion, and sermons. One of the goals is to hand on the heritage of the Free Church of Scotland to the next generation of office bearers. Another is to discuss practical problems we face in the work of the ministry. A third is to give us time on a regular basis to visit with one another and enjoy fellowship in prayer. A fourth is to provide an opportunity for the students for the ministry in the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) to discuss with the Presbytery the challenges they encounter in preparing for the ministry.
The schedule is for an arrival on Wednesday evening (no meetings), two morning sessions and an evening session on Thursday and Friday, and departure on Saturday morning. The Presbytery usually meets on the Thursday afternoon of the Colloquium, and on Friday afternoon there is an outing.
