Coming to a College near you…

Coming to a College near you…

At SBC we want to communicate that the College is a place of learning, not just for students, but as a place to serve the wider church constituency – Baptist and beyond! This term we have a great set of seminars, events, and lectures open to all who might be interested. We’d love to see you at one or all of them and also for you to spread the word to your friends and church communities.  For any further information on any of the events please do contact graham.meiklejohn@uws.ac.uk

April

  • We’re pleased to co-host this year’s Whitley Lecture with the Baptist Union of Scotland and presented by Helen Paynter. The event takes place on April 26th at Kirkintilloch Baptist Church at 2pm and it is an event not to be missed! The theme for this year’s lecture is as follows: Dead and Buried?: Attending to the voices of the victim in the Old Testament and today.
  • Our annual end of term Commissioning Service will take place on May 3rd and we’d love you to join us. We’re presently confirming the time and venue but it will take place after classes at approx 1pm. This is a great chance for friends and family of graduating students to celebrate with them as they move on to the next chapter of life, as well as for the rest of the student body to give thanks for the successful completion of another year of study!
