We are delighted to announce our Spring Conference double-bill of events

Friday 28 February 2020: Unstuck with Dr Tim Lane

Tim will guide us through his 9 step journey to change that lasts - be empowered to break free from unwanted habits and negative thought patterns that don’t seem to go away. This half day conference is intended for pastoral teams, counsellors or support workers aiming to help others become unstuck, or anyone looking for lasting personal change. If you have other commitments to attend to, the event will finish promptly by 13:00. Alternatively, you may like to join us for lunch, meet the speaker, network and ask questions in a relaxed atmosphere.

Doors open 09:00. Two morning sessions. Refreshments and lunch included.

Saturday 29 February 2020: Restless for Mission

Our successful conference series, Restless for Mission, continues for a third year. Led by Tim, we are aiming to strengthen, equip, enthuse, and encourage Edinburgh's churches for gospel centred mission. Come and worship in a welcoming environment, meet with others who are passionate about mission in Edinburgh, hear testimonies of how God is working amongst Edinburgh's people, and learn from Tim about practical ways to connect the gospel to people in real life. A morning and afternoon event for everyone who is restless for mission. Lunch is included in the ticket price.

Following very positive feedback from delegates of our Autumn conference, Encounter, we will once again create a Prayer Room with space to creatively pray, including an area for quiet reflection.

Doors open 10:00. Talk, Testimonies, Workshop, Worship, Prayer Room. Close 16:15.

Lunch and refreshments included.

Tim Lane

Dr. Timothy S. Lane is the Founder and President of the Institute for Pastoral Care, a non-profit that equips local churches to care for their people, and Tim Lane & Associates, a counselling practice located in Peachtree City, GA. He is a minister in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), having been ordained in 1991 and a member of Metro-Atlanta Presbytery. He has a Master of Divinity degree and a Doctor of Ministry degree in Pastoral Counselling.

Tim has authored Unstuck: A Nine-Step Journey to Change That Lasts (2019), Living Without Worry: How to Replace Anxiety with Peace (2015), and co-authored How People Change and Relationships: A Mess Worth Making (2007).

Here is the official trailer of the book, put together by the Good Book Company:

In 2014, Tim and his family re-located to his home state, Georgia, where he formed the non-profit ministry, the Institute for Pastoral Care. He also began a counseling practice, Tim Lane & Associates. Both organisations seek to help the local church. His primary desire and commitment is to help pastors and leaders create or improve their ability to care for the people who attend their churches.

He continues to write, speak and travel both nationally and internationally. Tim is adjunct professor of practical theology at several seminaries where he teaches about pastoral care in the local church.
