Dalgety Church, Regents Way, Dalgety Bay, KY11 9UY

10.00 am to 3.00 pm

The Keynote Speaker is the Rev Norman Smith.  Norman is both amusing and inspirational, and a really friendly, very approachable person.  He has been the parish minister of Edinburgh: Granton Parish church since 2005.  Previously he was the parish minister of Longside Parish Church in the Presbytery of Buchan for eight years.  He has been on the Mission and Discipleship Council for a number of years and was the Convener of the Emerging Churches Group.  He is behind the Equip events and has been the lead facilitator on the Mission-Shaped Ministry courses.  He became Convener of Mission and Discipleship at the General Assembly in May.

The conference is open to all.  The four workshops will be held twice which means you will be able to attend two of them.  Tea and coffee will be provided but we ask you to bring your own packed lunch.  Although we would prefer you to indicate in advance if you plan to be there it will still be possible just to turn up on the day.
