With the uncertainty clouding the School of Theology feasibility this year, the Tabernacle has planned instead two Days of Special Study in October and November, each with a separate Ministers’ Fraternal on the following Monday.

Saturday 9th October 2021, 11am – 4pm
(Pastors’ Fraternal Day, Monday 11th October 2021, 11am – 4pm)

Saturday 27th November 2021, 11am-4pm
(Pastors’ Fraternal Day, Monday 29th November 2021, 11am – 4pm)

On Saturday 9th October we welcome as speaker Pastor Michael J Beasley, Minister of Peace Baptist Church, Germanton, North Carolina, and author of The Fallible Prophets of New Calvinism, and other titles.

In recent decades a tremendous blow has been struck at the doctrine of cessationism – the ending of the sign gifts – by the widespread adoption of Professor Wayne Grudem’s notion about the ‘fallible’ nature of New Testament prophecy. This, for many, has sanctioned charismatic prophecy and other ‘gifts’. But Prof Grudem’s ideas are deeply flawed, along with their underlying textual foundation. Michael Beasley has powerfully demonstrated their flimsy and mistake-ridden basis, and will present his findings in three addresses that will be welcomed by all who are concerned to test the integrity of cessationism. This pivotal principle is clear in the great Confessions of Faith, and so vital for our defence against the superficiality and confusion invading all evangelical life.

On Saturday 27th November we welcome as speaker Dr Jeff Riddle, Pastor of Christ Reformed Baptist Church, Louisa, Virginia and a well-known advocate of the Traditional Text of the New Testament. Further information about Dr Riddle’s lectures will published soon.

Further details (including registration) will be published shortly.
