Reforming the Kirk

Lecture Poster
A series of three lectures by Rev Doug Gay entitled 'Reforming the Kirk'
will continue this week, viewable live on-line, later by download, on Wednesday 8th at 6:30pm, with the third and final lecture on 15th February.

These promise a candid, forthright and bold analysis of the state of the Church of Scotland and the choices facing it. For further details

He will explore what it means to be ‘presbyterian’ in today’s Scotland, in which even kirk members are ambivalent about their identity. Recognising the significant challenges facing the church in the coming decade, he will offer a manifesto for enacting structural reform, including key economic reforms, within the Kirk and will argue that change is essential to address deep seated problems of decline and dysfunction.

Rev Doug Gay Lecture

Lecture 1 — “Walls Without Church?”
The first lecture (1st February) explores ‘what just happened?’ tracing the decline of the Kirk as a national institution since the 1960s.

Lecture 2 — “Call and Response”
The second lecture (8th February) explores the relationship between the church’s understanding of its own calling and its response.

Lecture 3 — “Grand Designs”
The final lecture (15th February) makes the case for radical structural reform of the Church of Scotland over the next decade.
