060 – The General Assembly 2022

Season 2022, Episode 60,  Jun 15, 08:00 AM

As annual events retake their familiar place in the calendar, next week the General Assembly meets in Belfast, from Wednesday, 22 to Saturday, 25 June. It will be the first time since 2019 that it has been able to meet in its usual month and manner, following a smaller in-person meeting last October.

In this episode we look ahead to next week’s gathering of ministers and elders with guests the Moderator of the General Assembly, Rt Rev Dr David Bruce, the Clerk of the General Assembly, Rev Trevor Gribben, the Convener for the Council for Global Mission, Rev Dr Liz Hughes – who also gives us a glimpse of who we can expect from overseas and why their presence is so important - and Moderator Designate, Rev John Kirkpatrick, who will succeed Dr Bruce. This episode is hosted by Karen Jardine, PCI’s Public Affairs Officer.
