The Radical Gospel: Listening to the Reformation Witnesses

Date: Saturday, May 20th, 2017

Time: 9.30am  –  2pm

Location: 24 Fifth Avenue, Ascot Park, SA

Venue: Fishgate, and Ascot Community Uniting Church

500 Years ago, in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. This event sparked ‘The Reformation’.

The Uniting Church has very significant reformation roots. ‘Again and again’, we need to know or be reminded of the grace which justifies Christ’s people through faith,

of the centrality of the person and work of Christ the justifier, and of the need for a constant appeal to Holy Scripture (Basis of Union 10).

To that end, the Assembly of Confessing Congregations present a 1-day Interactive Conference.

The Uniting Church continues to learn of the teaching of the Holy Scriptures in the obedience and freedom of faith, and in the power of the promised gift of the Holy Spirit, from the witness of the   Reformers as expressed in various ways in:

• The Scots Confession of Faith

• The Heidelberg Catechism

• The Westminster Confession of Faith

• The Savoy Declaration and

• John Wesley in his Forty-Four Sermons (1793)
