Find the idea of evangelism a little frightening?

The Confident Christianity conference in Dundee on 3 November aims to help you become bolder and more enthusiastic in talking about Jesus with friends.

On human sexuality: Dr Ben Thomas, a Consultant in Neuro Intensive Care Medicine and Anaesthesia at University Hospital, Southampton has two sessions – “Sex and Salvation: A Story of Personal Transformation” and “Sharing the Gospel with LGBT Friends, Colleagues and Family”.
On cultural engagement with today’s world: Dr Mark Stirling from the Chalmers Institute in St Andrews, brings his academic rigour together with his experience of church-planting in contemporary Scotland. While Solas’ own director, Dr Andy Bannister speaks on relating the gospel to our peers, faithfully and persuasively.
