I would heartily recommend more of these and a gathering in the Highlands.
I think the number present was about right. There was an intimacy that was appealing but it was broad enough not to be claustrophobic.
Yes, a modest turnover of people (introducing others) seems healthy.
Definitely complements other things. Thank you for the vision – other geographical areas I feel would work.
Involve others first, as there will inevitably be fluidity in who is available, then over a period of time, growing a base of 30-40 who are committed. Put this in place before other gatherings.
20-30 should be limit. Those on margins – women preachers
It is very good that there is a mix of denominations. The focus on biblical exposition will naturally exclude some non evangelicals! (I would not want this compromised of course).
Perhaps an additional event (afternoon or morning) to sensitively promote biblical preaching in a wider context than evangelical gathering (or gathering of evangelicals).
Yes, in theory – how / who in practice, could organise one, say, up north ....there is a MacDonald’s Hotel in Aviemore!
Maybe interest in N of Scotland too?
