This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Scottish Reformed Conference. 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 10th May 2014, at Hamilton College, Hamilton, ML3 0AY.
Our speakers this year will be:
Dr Sinclair Ferguson is well known to us as an internationally renowned theologian, author and minister. He is a Professor of Systematic Theology at Redeemer Seminary in Dallas and part-time Professor of Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia) and has authored over two dozen books ranging from scholarly works to books for children. A native Scot, he served as minister of two congregations in Scotland, one on Unst, the most northerly inhabited island in the United Kingdom, and St Georges Tron, Glasgow, before taking up ministry as Senior Minister of the First Presbyterian Church of Columbia, South Carolina, USA. Having returned to Scotland, Dr Ferguson is now a member of the preaching team at St Peters Free Church, Dundee.
We are delighted that, in our 25th Anniversary year, the Rev David Carmichael is able to minister to us. He is well known to us as Chairman of the conference and is a founding member of the SRC. Over the years, the conference has benefitted immensely from David’s leadership and energy and it is fitting that he should take part in our programme this year. David has exercised a much respected and influential ministry at Abbeygreen Church of Scotland, Lesmahagow since 1982 and is widely recognised as an evangelical leader in Scotland. His ministry is in demand at home and abroad and has recently taken him as far afield as South Africa and the United States. David is also an active chairman of many evangelical causes and works in Scotland such as see him involved in the promotion and advancement of missionary endeavour (for example, with UFM Worldwide) and in ministerial encouragement and development (with The Reformed Ministers Fraternal).
