The Abbey Summer School is a venture in Scotland that offers Christian teaching and nourishment to all who like to think about their faith. Now in its fourth year, The Abbey seeks to address core elements of Christian faith that speak in a particularly direct way to our present cultural moment, and to do this with theological and spiritual depth and integrity. In doing so, our aim is to reach towards something of the integration of thought and emotion, head and heart, spirituality and theology. The free evening public lecture is a great way to come and experience The Abbey for yourself and hear some of the excellent teaching on offer.”
The BB closing night will take place on Friday 4th May at 7 pm in the main hall of Newhaven Church.
The doors will open at 6.45 pm. All are welcome to come along and celebrate the end of the current session and see what the Company has been up to this last year.

In his sermon this morning Rev. Peter Bluett spoke about the noble aim and seeking the Kingdom of God. He explored the consequences of taking the narrow or the broad way, contrasting the difference between material and spiritual desires.
