God willing, this year’s 22nd Salisbury Conference will be held on 28-29 September. On Friday 28 September, the meeting will be at 7.30pm and on Saturday 29 September the meetings will be at 10.30am, 1.00pm and 2.30pm.
Sadly, Dr. Michael Haykin is unable to be with us due to ill-health and pressure of other commitments, but we are extremely grateful to Rev. John Keddie of Kirkhill, Inverness-shire, who at short notice, has kindly agreed to come and be our Guest Speaker for the weekend.
Mr Keddie is Minister of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing). After serving in Burghead and Bracadale, he retired from the ministry in 2011 and since 2014 he has been the Principal of the Seminary of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing).
The general theme of the Conference and the titles of the four addresses will be as follows:
The Church of our Lord Jesus Christ
John Knox: The Reformation of the Church
The Synod of Dort (1618-19): The Doctrine of Grace in the Church
Revival: Spiritual Life in the Church of Scotland (1596-1630)
The Covenanters (1638-90): Faithfulness to Christ's Church, His Crown and Covenant
Mr Keddie will also be preaching at both services on the Sabbath, 29 September at 11.00am and 6.30pm and he will be speaking at the After Church Meeting at 8.30pm.
We are prayerfully looking forward to this Conference weekend and we trust God will be with us in the blessing of His Grace. We very much hope that you will be able to join us on this special occasion.
