Saturday 7th October | 11.30-16.00

Followed by a Fraternal on Monday 9th October

All believers are warmly invited to attend on Saturday (free admission)

When eminent ministers from afar visited the Tabernacle in the time of C H Spurgeon, they invariably recorded their wonder at how the church functioned in numerous ministries involving so many members.
Today many see Spurgeon as a man of the pulpit, not always realising his promotion of earnest Christian service by all, through the Lord’s enabling.

The individual congregation exists by divine design. Autonomous and self-governing, it is the pillar and ground of Truth, the Saviour’s appointed instrument for the proclamation of his Word. It is a house of worship, of prayer and also of service to the Lord, for which we need to uphold the biblical concept of a ‘working church’.

This will be the focus in five addresses across the Day of Special Studies and the Fraternal for pastors, seminarians and Christian workers.

The Fully-Functioning Church

Dr Peter Masters

Metropolitan Tabernacle

Dr Masters will unfold the theme The Fully-Functioning Church, and will present the New Testament exhortations to serve, the fields of labour, and the mighty rewards in the life, unity and happiness of a church. Two addresses on this theme will be given on Saturday and a third at the Monday Fraternal.

The Foundation of Consecration

Pastor Ibrahim Ag Mohamed

Uxbridge Road Tabernacle

Pastor Ibrahim Ag Mohamed will emphasise The Foundation of Consecration or dedication to the cause, the crucial foundation for building a ‘working church’. One address on this topic will be given on Saturday and a second on Monday with special application to leaders.

All believers are warmly welcome to attend the Saturday sessions, which are highly significant for all –
especially students and young Christians preparing for lifetimes of commitment to Christ


Pastors, Christian workers and seminarians are very welcome to attend both days,
the subjects covered at the Fraternal being distinctively suitable to pastors and Christian workers
