On arrival at the Scottish Women’s Bible Convention everyone will need to sign up for their seminar.  To avoid long queues, we’d encourage everyone to have decided beforehand what they’d like to sign up for.  Below are the seminar description with links to the post from the seminar leader sharing more about the topic.

Morning seminars

Serving Jesus in the 9 to 5 – Judith McNinch and Carolyn Finlayson

This seminar is for any Christian working in a secular environment who seeks to live their life in the 9-5 in a way that is Christlike.

Evangelism to nice people – Norma Shippin

Looking at the barriers to engaging with folk who feel no need of the gospel and finding biblical answers as to why our lovely friends, family and work colleagues do actually still need to find salvation and how to persevere.

Lessons from the Reformers Wives – Clare Heath-Whyte

2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation – when the wonderful truth of justification by faith alone was rediscovered by Martin Luther. The names of some of the male reformers are well known – but the role of women was vital too. We will be looking at the fascinating lives of a couple of these women to see how justification by faith alone and the doctrine of scripture alone transformed their lives – and how they influenced the world around them.

Afternoon seminars

Gender – Rachel Sloan

This seminar will be an introduction to gender looking at the current cultural viewpoint and how we should think about this topic biblically.

Staying close to Jesus as a Mum – Shiona Rees and Kathryn Garvie

This seminar will look at how to keep your devotion to Jesus growing throughout the challenges of child rearing.

How to study the gospels – Jody MacIver

This seminar will aim to give us the tools to be able to understand and apply the gospels – particularly the trickier narrative bits.
