Seminar – What is church?

On Monday, we like to draw your attention to certain aspects of the Scottish Women’s Bible Convention. For the next few weeks, we’ll be telling you a bit more about the range of Seminars that are on offer.

Amy Wicks, from Glasgow, will be leading a seminar called ‘What is church?’.

What is the seminar about?

Its easy to think about church in terms of things that we do – church is where we hear from God’s
word, where we sing, where we do community. But what actually is the church? We’ll be looking
at what God says about the church, and how that shapes our relationship with church and the
people in it.

Who is the seminar for?

Anyone who is part of a church or looking to join one, anyone who wants to be encouraged by
thinking about God’s plan for the church, and anyone who wants to grow in their love for the

Why is this area important?

It’s a simple idea, but what you think something is drastically affects how you relate to it. God’s
view of the church is bigger and more glorious than we might dare to believe. When we start to
think about church the way God does, it has a huge impact on the way we relate to our church,
and the people has placed there.

Besides your seminar, what one thing about the Scottish Women’s Convention are you looking
forward to and why?

I moved to Scotland less than a year ago, so I’m looking to meeting some new people and hearing
your stories about how God is at work in your local church.
