The Scottish Reformed Conference (SRC) is a unique event in the Scottish Christian calendar at which over 500 believers of all ages and denominations gather to know the benefit and blessing of faithful ministry of the highest calibre as well as the delight of warm, Christian fellowship. It is our prayer that God will continue to use the SRC to bless, encourage and inspire His people and to enable them to enjoy fellowship and friendship across denominational boundaries.
This years conference will take place on Saturday 13th May 2017, at Hamilton College, Hamilton, ML3 0AY.
Our speakers this year will be David Meredith, Rupert Bentley-Taylor and Warren Peel:
David Meredith is Mission Director for the Free Church of Scotland. He is involved in supporting evangelism, church planting and revitalisation both internationally and here in Scotland. David was previously senior minister at Smithton Free Church in Inverness, Scotland where during his thirty year ministry the church grew from a church plant to one of Scotland’s largest congregations. It has been his privilege to speak at conferences in the UK, mainland Europe and the USA. He is married to Nina and they have a grown-up family. He numbers among his interests motor cycling, reading biographies of interesting and diverse people. He is an addict of Desert Island Disc podcasts and claims he has never watched Eastenders.
Rupert was born into a missionary family and lived as a child in the Far East. He taught history for six years and then went on to serve as a pastor for 30 years, firstly in Bournemouth and then in Bath. He also served for three years as the very last FIEC President. He has taught the Bible in a number of training courses and conventions and been engaged in preaching training in North India over many years. Rupert, with his wife Margie, are currently involved in a new church, Emmanuel Church, in Bath, though Rupert now speaks widely across the country. They have four grown-up children and eleven grandchildren (at the time of writing!).
Warren Peel read Classics at Oxford University before returning to Northern Ireland to study theology at the Reformed Theological College in Belfast and at Queen’s University Belfast. He was ordained to the ministry in 2001 and served in Ballyclabber Reformed Presbyterian Church in Coleraine, Northern Ireland until 2012 when he was called to Trinity RPC in Newtownabbey, part of the suburbs of north Belfast.
