The Commission 2017
It was great to see 250 men gather for The Commission on 4 March 2017. Many arrived early so there was a real buzz about Newton Mearns Baptist Church by 9.30 am. The three speakers complemented each other and dealt expertly with the various aspects of how we can proclaim our faith as men in 21st C Scotland. Their talks have all been recorded and are available on DVD. If you didn't manage to get along it is worth spending £10 and listening to what they had to say.
The singing and worship was truly inspiring and our thanks go to Al Lightbody and his band for leading us in praise.
We had contributions from three exhibitors - Glasgow City Mission, The Heralds Trust, and Scripture Union. Each had 5 minutes to tell us a little about what ministry they were currently involved in. After lunch we uplifted a freewill offering which raised just over £800 and we intend sharing this gift with these partners in Christ. Many thanks to all of you who contributed. We greatly appreciate your generosity.
There were 17 other organisations in our exhibition area and we also want to thank each one of them for their support.
We trust you were greatly blessed by being present on the day or you will be blessed if you watch and listen on DVD.
Provisionally, we have earmarked Saturday 3 March 2018 for next year's event.
