’Follow me’ theme for next three years

How the church is responding to the call for a radical action plan.

MINISTERS and elders from across Scotland gathered in Clydebank on October 31 for a two-day presbyteries conference, convened by the Council of Assembly. The aim of the conference was to help lay the groundwork for a radical action plan to guide the future of the Church as it meets the challenges of mission in the 21st century.

The call for a ‘radical action plan’ came from the 2018 General Assembly, which rejected a proposed 10-year strategic plan, instead directing the Council of Assembly to return in 2019 with a more radical plan for 2019-22. Church members were also asked to consider the ideas of the Glasgow University theologian the Rev Dr Doug Gay, expressed in a series of lectures in 2017 and his book ‘Reforming the Kirk’.
