Is your congregation currently without a minister? Are you having to help out more with bible studies and pastoral visits? Do you feel like you need help to understand things better so you can explain them more clearly? Find out about our Access Course on our website at www.htc.uhi.ac.uk/courses/access-christian-theology

Semester 2 starts next week! Classes get underway on Tuesday. We're looking forward to welcoming back the students after their Christmas break and welcoming in any new ones who are starting with us 😀
Hector Morrison, Principal, will be attending the Pathways Conference at Tayside Christian Fellowship on Saturday. He’ll be available to answer general questions about training for ministry and for anyone interested in training at HTC who better to ask!
Readership is an increasingly important role in our churches, especially in presbyteries where there are several vacancies or if ministers are on sick leave, study leave, etc. You can train for Readership (as well as ‘Ministry of Word and Sacrament’ and ‘Ordained Local Ministry’) through HTC.
Congratulations to Barbara Black [current student] on being ‘set apart’ as a Reader last month and to Maureen O'Neill [CertHE 2017] and Leslie O'Neill [CertHE 2017] who will be ‘set apart’ as Readers next month. We wish each of them great blessing in their ministries.
The Ordination of Anne White [DipHE 2017] is scheduled for Thursday 1st February, 7pm at Grahamston United Church, Bute Street, Falkirk. All welcome. Congratulations Anne 😊 and every blessing in your ministry.
Congratulations to Gary Torbet [BA 2012] on his Ordination at a special service yesterday morning at Broughty Ferry Baptist Church. We wish Gary every blessing in his ministry.
