Dumisani Theological Institute 40th Anniversary
On Friday 18th October at 7.30pm, there will be special meeting in the Rev M A Macleod Memorial Hall, Kenneth Street, to mark the 40th anniversary of the Dumisani Theological Institute & Bible School in Southern Africa. The speaker will be Dr Jack C Whytock, Visiting Principal at the institute and his theme will be ‘The Vital Importance of the Bible School Movement in Missions’. A book marking the anniversary Voices of Thanksgiving will be available on the evening.
Dumisani is the official theological training institute of the Free Church in Southern Africa. Although the church there became independent in 1982, its origins and history is firmly rooted in the endeavours of Free Church of Scotland missionaries and it continues to have strong partnership links with the Free Church of Scotland. The Free Church in the Western Isles has always maintained a supportive interest in the missionary movement in Southern Africa. We trust that this interest will be reflected with a good attendance on the evening. Tea and coffee will be served afterwards.

“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”
C. H. Spurgeon
