Confident Christianity – Aberdeen
1 June 2019 @ 09:00 - 16:30
Confident Christianity comes to Aberdeen.
Do you find the thought of talking about Jesus to friends, neighbours, classmates or colleagues daunting? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking “what if I say something that makes God look bad?” Or wondering what happens if they raise a challenging question or objection to which you’re unable to respond. (“Aren’t Christians bigoted and homophobic?”; “Isn’t the Bible unreliable and full of errors?”; “Hasn’t science buried God?”; “Isn’t religion just a psychological crutch?” … and the list goes on).
Well, you’re not alone! In the fast-paced, skeptical and secular culture in which we live, most of us find evangelism a bit daunting. That’s why Solas is partnering with churches in Aberdeen for a Confident Christianity conference hosted by Hebron Evangelical Church. We will be bringing you a great line-up of speakers including our own Andy Bannister. They’ll help you become confident and empowered to talk about Jesus more naturally, engage in evangelism that persuades people, and feel equipped to answer the questions of your friends.
Standard Ticket: £15 / Concessions £5 (plus booking fees)
Our speakers for this event include:
Andy Bannister, Director of Solas
Professor David Galloway, President of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow
Mark Stirling, Chalmers Institute
Max Baker-Hytch, Wycliffe Hall
As the popular evangelist J John once said: “Many times Christians are like arctic rivers. They have frozen mouths.” Come along to a Confident Christianity conference and de-thaw!
