It is remarkablethat the Gospels and Acts, taken together, comprise almost two thirds of the bulk of the New Testament. Here is evidence of the importance of narrative in the formation of Christian faith.
- How does this affect what we preach on?
- How does preaching from narrative differ from other genres?
- Why is this so relevant to today’s generation?
Come and explore these and related issues with:
- Director of the 2 Timothy 4 trust
- Formerly Senior Pastor at Charlotte Chapel, Edinburgh
- Senior Minister, Buccleuch & Greyfriars Free Church
- Author of “Tell Me The Story”
7th May, 10am – 1pm

As I reflected on this after stepping down as Senior Pastor in Charlotte Chapel and, for the time in 25 years, not having to prepare to preach this Christmas, I wondered if I could be of some help and encouragement to fellow-pastors and preachers? Could I offer some examples of Christmas messages that you could take and adapt for your own use?
