I was impressed with the way that the students, as well as having heaps of laughs, games, sport, music, a bonfire, and a ceilidh were really engaged with the Bible teaching, small groups studies and prayer times too
One of the things that make our partnership with churches a real joy is that we don’t just forge useful working arrangements; but also make great friends.
Working with Solas was great, working with Solas was very easy. One because Solas are absolutely committed to working in partnership with churches. Actually, it never felt as if it was a “Solas” conference! It was a conference that was primarily led by the local churches but getting all the benefit from the Solas ministry, infrastructure and so on. It felt like a genuine partnership. It was good.
Science and the Christian faith, far from being at war with one another, actually fit together very well. This is partly because they are answering a different set of questions, but also because Christianity actually provides the best foundation for doing science.
A highlight from the last few months, teaching apologetics to crowds in the sunshine!
. It was also really encouraging to see Christians from across the churches in Aberdeen coming together to think about this. I hope that conference will have an overflow-effect so that this won’t be just a one-off fun event for a Saturday, but actually begins to change the way we engage with our colleagues in a day-to-day life
"It was great to work together with SU Scotland, Powerpoint, and Mike Pilavachi and speak to hundreds and hundreds of eager young people who want to go deeper with God"
people have found today so helpful because it was real, it was informative but also inspired people who are shy in talking about their faith to think ‘I can do this!’
Everybody yearns for happiness, and security in an intact identity; yet huge numbers of people find these goals elusive.
“It was particularly fantastic to have so much time with a group, because you really get to know them and talk in-depth about their situations; specific friends they are trying to share their faith with, particular issues they are dealing with; and to pray with some of them too."
