9-13 Jul 2012

  • Intro

    CTC is a conference that teaches the interpretation of the Bible with Christ at the centre of all that it says. CTC returns this year with Rev. Dr. Andrew Shead taking us through the Biblical Theology of Prophecy.

    4 evening talks

    These are the main talks from Dr. Shead on the topic. If you can't make it to the rest of the week's events, make it to these.

    3 morning workshops

    At these "Behind the Scenes" (BTS) morning workshops, Dr. Shead will take us through the thought process he went through in preparing to teach the evening sessions. These workshops are targeted at those in full-time ministry or with teaching roles in their churches, but are open to all.

    2 Sunday sermons

    Dr. Shead will preach one sermon on the Sunday before CTC and one more at the end of the week.

    1 special event

    This event will be hosted by the Evangelical Ministers Assembly (EMA) and is where Dr. Shead will go into more depth on how the theology of what has been taught during the week contributes to healthy local churches.

  • Speaker

    Rev. Dr. Andrew Shead

    Andrew Shead

    Rev. Dr. Andrew Shead is the head of the Old Testament Department at Moore Theological College, where he lectures in Hebrew, Old Testament and Music. Between teaching – which he never tires of – he writes on Jeremiah and the Septuagint.

    We caught up with Andrew recently to ask him a few questions about himself. Here are his answers:

    How long have you been teaching theology?

    20 years.

    Which denomination are you currently in?

    Anglican.

    Will your lectures cater for those from all denominations?

    Yes!

    Will your lectures cater for those who do not know much about theology?

    They are for anyone who is interested in what the Bible says and how it applies to their life.

    What's your favourite quote?

    I don't have one! Here are two great quotes that spring to mind. From Groucho Marx: "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

    And (more seriously!) from John Donne, "Therefore that he may raise, the Lord casts down" – the last line of a great poem called Hymn to God my God in my sickness.

    Can you tell us about your family?

    I am married to Jean, and we have three children aged 10, 13 and 15.

    What do you enjoy doing besides theology?

    I like hanging out with my family, reading books to my kids, watching films with them, and playing the piano.
