Salisbury Conference 2017
God willing, this year's 21st Salisbury Conference will be held on 22nd-24th September. Our Guest Speaker will be Rev. Timothy Nelson, Minister of the Free Presbyterian Church in Ballynahinch, Northern Ireland.
As this year marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his '95 Theses' to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg (31 October 1517) - an event which sparked the Reformation - the general theme of the conference will be The Protestant Reformation.
The titles and times of the addresses will be as follows:
Friday, 22 September
1. 7.30pm: The Reformation: An Extraordinary Work of God;
Saturday, 23 September
2. 10.30am: Great Biblical Truths Rediscovered in the Reformation;
3. 1.00pm: Spiritual Effects of the Reformation, Then and Now;
4. 2.30pm: Maintaining a Reformation Stance in the Twenty-First Century.
Mr. Nelson will preach the Word of God at services on the Sabbath at the usual times of 11.00am and 6.30pm and speak at an After-Church meeting at approximately 8.30pm.
We hope you will be able to join us for this year's conference. The theme is important, relevant and vital, particularly as Church Leaders in the Roman and Anglican Communions have urged the need to seek 'forgiveness for divisions perpetuated by Christians from the two traditions (Roman Catholic and Protestant)', referring to 'the lasting damage done five centuries ago to the unity of the Church.'
For our part, we believe the Protestant Reformation was a great and glorious work of God's Spirit, the rediscovery of the Truth of the Holy Scriptures and the restoration of the Church to her primitive and apostolic purity. It is a work for which we thank God; and we call on the Lord's professing people to return to the Reformed Faith and earnestly contend for it. May this year's conference be used to that end!
