“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ…” (1 Peter 4:10-11 ESV)

A lot of effort goes into making our Sunday gatherings work. Bible readings, prayers, songs, catechisms, children’s talks, even announcements — when these are done without proper examination and preparation, they can be distracting, dull and disorderly. How can we make sure that our service in the church gathering both honour Christ, and encourage those in our midst? Bryan Chapell will lead us through gospel-shared principles expounded in his book, Christ-Centered Worship, and give attendees time to work out the practicalities. Our guest Angus Gibb will also give input in how music teams can incorporate “psalms, hymns and spiritual songs” (Colossians 3:16) in ways that exalt the Lord and bring encouragement to the congregation.
Pastors, elders, service leaders should not miss this great opportunity to reexamine their approaches to public worship and lead their ministry teams to faithful and fruitful service in the church gathering.Registration Costs

The annual Eliza Ferrie Public Lecture is back. What does Daniel’s rescue from the lions mean for Christians today? This is an opportunity to see how redemptive preaching is brought to life as Bryan Chapell expounds this part of the Scriptures. We will be interviewing Dr Chapell about how God has grown him as both a preacher and a listener of God’s Word, and how we can listen to God’s Word better. This event also includes the Book Launch for Dr. Ian K. Smith’s newly released book, ‘Not Home Yet: How the Renewal of the Earth Fits into God’s Plan for the World‘, published by Crossway Books.
Entry is free.
