An in-depth introduction to Reformed Presbyterian theology and ministry.

What is it?

What does Christian ministry involve? What is distinctive about Presbyterian churches? Might ministry in a Presbyterian church be appropriate for me in the future? The IPC Weekender is intended as a chance for those thinking about full-time ministry to come and explore these questions, particularly in relation to the IPC. Whether in a ministry role already, at college or just thinking about ministry in the future, come and explore the Presbyterian option with two IPC ministers and church planters.

Who is it for?

The Weekender is especially aimed at those considering full-time ministry, whether currently linked with the IPC or not. It’s also open to anyone in IPC churches wanting to learn more
