A two day course for church members who wish to learn how to prepare and deliver a talk from the Bible.

Handling the Word is a course for those who wish to learn how to deliver a biblical talk. It would be useful for anyone who gives talks to a youth fellowship, a Presbyterian Women meeting, a Men’s Breakfast as well as those who have the opportunity to preach a Sunday sermon. The course is normally a pre-requisite for the Accredited Preacher course but there is no obligation to progress to that scheme. The only entry requirement is to be a communicant member of a Presbyterian Church in Ireland congregation.

Each day will include teaching sessions and practical workshops.

Topics covered:
  • The Bible as the foundation,
  • Understanding and applying the Bible passage
  • Considering your hearers.

This course is organised by Ards Presbytery, but is open to people from other presbyteries. It will be held in Greenwell Street Presbyterian Church, Newtownards.


Saturday, 6th January and Saturday, 13th January from 10am to 4pm.

A charge of £30 will be made to cover the expenses involved in running the course. Tea/coffee will be supplied but you should bring a packed lunch with you on the day. Pre-registration is required.

To register please contact Rev. Dr. Paul Bailie by email: paul.bailie@missionafrica.org.uk
