Aberdeen Study Weekends 2018

Module: Galatians (NEW19)

“The dangers of legalism are never far away and always to be opposed. This module examines the text of this letter in light of its first century context and draws some important lessons from it for today.”

Dates: 25th to 26th May and 29th to 30th June 2018

Study Weekends

Our Study Weekends are excellent opportunities for students of Jesus to immerse themselves in periods of intense Bible study focusing on particular sections of Scripture. In addition to the classroom experience, there is also opportunity to complete additional assignments to fulfil the Module requirements for the British Bible School Applied Biblical Studies curriculum.

Your teachers for these weekends will be: Jon Galloway and Jack Paton, both of whom have invested much time in studying the New Testament text.

Lunch on Saturday and light refreshments will be provided. Students are asked to make a voluntary contribution of £10 (or more!) each weekend to help cover our costs. Thank you.
