We are delighted to announce that Jan Bradford has agreed to continue to provide administrative support to RCRT through her company. It looked as if we might lose here since she is busy completing her PhD but she has agreed to continue.
We are also pleased to announce that John Bruce has agreed to become a Trustee and to take over from Robert Nelson as treasurer of RCRT. We are very grateful to Robert for his many years of faithful service, first to Rutherford House and latterly to RCRT.
We expect to announce a list of new Trustees shortly.
In April, Professor McGowan will be leading Elders’ training for a group of churches in the Erskine area.
The Church of Scotland Presbytery of Lewis invited RCRT to provide training for those Elders whom the Presbytery want to set apart to preach. The first part of the training took place in August. The second part will follow in the Spring or early summer.
Have you looked yet at the World Reformed Fellowship’s ‘Statement of Reformed Theological Identity’?
