Preaching Workshops

These are a central feature of preaching conferences: we work together in small groups on a book or theme with a small number of others under the leadership of an experienced preacher. The goal is to help one another in our handling and communication of the Bible’s message.

Each workshop will meet three times, and will involve some preparation before the conference: details of this will be sent about a month in advance.

  • Stream 1 – David Jackman for newcomers
  • Stream 2 – Eddie Coulter on Matthew 5-7
  • Stream 3 – Ferran Glenfield on 1 Kings (Ahab/Elijah)
  • Stream 4 – Chris Kennedy on James
  • Stream 5 – David Martin on the Life of Abraham
  • Stream 6 – David Montgomery on Micah
  • Stream 7 – Jonathan Reid on Mark 1-8
  • Stream 8 – John Samuel on Isaiah 1-12

Please indicate your 1st and 2nd stream preference on the registration form. We do our best to fit you into the group of your choice, but will allocate on a first come, first served basis.

Is it for Me?

This conference is intended for those with a regular Bible preaching ministry in the Republic of Ireland. It affords an opportunity to be ministered to as well as to work hard together on the task of preaching the Bible. None of us can ‘go it alone’, and fellowship with others across the denominations who share in the struggles of authentic, biblical ministry can be a vital source of strength and encouragement. So, if that is you, we welcome you to join us.
