Spring Conference Report

A good number of folk gathered in brilliant sunshine for the annual Spring Conference of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing), which was held at Culloden-Balloch Baptist Church recently.

The speaker was Mr. Nigel Kenny, Scotland Officer for the Christian Institute.  His topic was the role of Male and Female in our Society.

Spring Conference 1

The Rev Harry Woods (Beauly) ably chaired the gathering, leading worship before both the morning and afternoon sessions.

In the morning Mr. Kenny addressed the gathering on “The Role of Male and Female in Society”.  He dealt effectively in showing how far removed our society has become from the Scriptural standard of Male and Female, and how as Christians we must stay “salt and light” in our perishing world.

In the afternoon Mr. Kenny spoke on the relatively recent rise of the Transgender movement, and its insistence on indoctrination of all strata of society.  After both his addresses, Mr. Kenny answered questions on the practical implications of his subject.


Thanks are due to the Culloden-Balloch Baptist Church for the use of their building.  To Mrs. Debbie Allan and her helpers for the lovely lunch provided.  To Mrs. Flora Roberts who organised the children’s activities, and to the Rev John Keddie, who led short, but informative times of Psalmody.
