The aim of the Conference is to promote Biblical doctrine and foster Christian fellowship.

God willing there will be a creche and children's programme at the Conference. Booking options include a buffet lunch.

Spring ConferenceTalkingThe title of this year’s conference is 'Revival', and as usual there will be two sessions. 

At the morning session, Rev. Maurice Roberts (retired) will speak on 'The Principles and Necessity of Revival'. At the afternoon session, Rev. Murdo A.N. Macleod (Snizort) will speak on 'Twentieth-Century Revivals in the Western Isles'.

There will time for questions after each session.

All are most welcome and we trust that the Lord will bless the teaching and fellowship to all who attend.

The Presbytery of the Outer Hebrides will meet (D.V.) in Stornoway Free Church (Continuing) on Tuesday 14th April 2020 at 7.00pm for Ordinary Business and Election of Commissioners to the General Assembly.

18 May General Assembly CORONAVIRUS UPDATE


The Assembly Arrangements & Nominations Committee met on recently to consider matters relating to the meeting of the 2020 General Assembly in the light of the current situation.

It was evident that for various reasons it would not, in the Lord’s providence, be practicable for the Assembly to meet in the normal manner this year. The following was agreed by the Committee as a recommendation to the Assembly:

The Assembly should be constituted, as indicted, in Edinburgh on Monday 18th May 2020, with the meeting taking place mainly by teleconference.

At the meeting on 18th May, subject to the agreement of the Assembly, the Assembly will, after a few preliminaries, consider only at that time a Report by the AAN Committee. The Assembly will then suspend to meet in Inverness on Tuesday 6th October. The fact it is being suspended rather than adjourning to meet will give a degree of flexibility, should it be impossible to meet on the said date.

The Assembly will reconvene on Tuesday 6th October at 1 pm and continue business with a brief break for refreshments until around 8:30 pm.

The Assembly will resume on Wednesday 7th October at 9 am, with the intention being that the Assembly can close by 3 pm.
