The Christian Church

Her Lord and Servants, Her Life and Praise

14-16 June 2022 – IPC Ealing

The 2022 IPC Catalyst Conference will look at the doctrine of the church in Scripture. We will spend time encountering the living God in Scripture in our morning expositions as we consider the ministers, ministry and preaching of the church. The rest of each day will then explore what happens when we worship, who runs the church, and what sustains the church in a hostile world.

Each day will consist of the following sessions:

The Servants of the Church

Sinclair Ferguson (Morning Expositions)

The Praise of the Church

Jonathan Landry Cruse

The Lord of the Church

Jonty Rhodes

The Life of the Church

Jonny Gibson (Sabbath)

Catalyst Event

Loving God with Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength:

A Vision for Theological Education

Wednesday 15th June 2022, 6-11pm

Hog Roast and Summer BBQ hosted by Westminster Theological Seminary

The Drayton Court Ballroom

There are 120 free places for an evening of good food and reflection on what is at the heart of effective theological education. Jonny Gibson will interview Sinclair Ferguson about his life and ministry, and staff from Westminster will also be present to explain more about the historic vision of the seminary and what it offers for the needs of contemporary ministry.

The event is first come first served, but priority will be given to those currently in or considering further theological education (male or female) and to those in church ministry responsible for the training of others. It is only open to those attending Catalyst.
