One of Scotland’s most renowned theologians will offer his hard hitting analysis on the Kirk’s future in a series of lectures beginning tomorrow night.
Rev Dr Doug Gay, principal of Trinity College, Glasgow, and lecturer in practical theology, promises to provide audience members an evening of “candid, forthright and bold analysis of the state of the Church of Scotland and the choices facing it.”
Each lecture will take place at 6.30pm at St Giles’ Cathedral on the 1st, 8th and 15th February.
Lecture 1 - Wednesday 1 February
The first lecture explores ‘what just happened?’ tracing the decline of the Kirk as a national institution since the 1960s.
Lecture 2 - Wednesday 8 February
The second lecture explores the relationship between the Church’s understanding of its own calling and its response.
Lecture 3 - Wednesday 15 February
The final lecture makes the case for radical structural reform of the Church of Scotland over the next decade.
The lectures are free to attend, or watch online on the Church of Scotland home page.
