Wondering whether you should go to the Scottish Women’s Bible Convention and why you should be excited about “another Christian conference”? To help we asked different people why they benefitted from last years convention, why they’ll be coming again and encouraging others to buy tickets.
Alison McKendrick from East Kilbride came last year and answered some questions for us.
What were your highlights from the 2016 Scottish Women’s Bible Convention?
I thought the whole convention was excellent – the organisation, the speakers, the worship team, venue and hospitality.
The encouragement received from the talks was just what I needed. To fix our eyes on Jesus, finish the race well. Remove all the obstacles that slow us down, confess negativity, pride, self-righteousness. Be honest and completely open in our relationship with God. 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10, ‘Turn from idols to serve the living and true God, as we wait for Jesus to return’. God is not working for our happiness but for our holiness.
Why would you encourage someone to go this year?
To engage with other Christian women who face the same struggles as us. To learn more of God’s promises and purpose for our lives. To take time out of our busy lives to focus on Jesus and worship together as women of God. To be open and to listen to what God is speaking into our lives.
What one thing about the 2017 Scottish Women’s Bible Convention are you looking forward to and why?
Being with women of God as we worship, share and learn together, so we can grow in holiness, with the power of the Spirit of God, to be more like Jesus.
