St James Church, Kenilworth is excited to host the

Third Charles Simeon Trust Workshop in Biblical Exposition

10-12 July 2019

This workshop is for those who have responsibility for the regular public preaching ministry of the Word of God and for men preparing for that kind of ministry. It is designed to strengthen every pastor’s ability to better understand and proclaim the Word of God with the goal of strengthening every local church. In their statement of the rationale for Workshops, the Charles Simeon Trust states:

“It is our conviction that the health of the Church depends on the proclamation of God’s Word.  The spiritual health of the Church is derived from the preaching of the Scriptures through the power of the Holy Spirit by preachers and teachers who really believe the Bible to be the words of God.”

Each preaching conference focuses on a specific genre of Biblical literature.

The theme of this year’s workshop is Preaching Old Testament Narrative and our focus will be on 1 Samuel.

The workshop includes a combination of interactive instructional sessions, encouraging exposition, and small group workshops where every participant works through passages of Scripture and gets to present a prepared talk outline for 2 selected passages.

The cost is R275 before 30 June and includes lunch and materials.Please remember that spaces are limited.

We would encourage you to invite other pastors in your church or area who would also benefit from this training.

In Christ
