A Matter of Heart & Life
DISCIPLESHIP in the Wesleyan Tradition

Aldersgate Convention
7.45 pm Toa Payoh Methodist Church
The Rev Dr David Lowes Watson

Thursday 22 May:
“Born of the Spirit”

Sin is not our fault, we are born into it. But it becomes our fault when we try to deny our condition. We need to be “born of the Spirit”, which in itself is a dynamic process from conception to birth to growth.

Friday 23 May:
“Salvation and Discipleship”

There were two tracks in the ministry of Jesus – salvation, and discipleship. Each was clearly distinct. All are offered salvation in Christ, but not everyone is called to discipleship. This insight could greatly strengthen pastoral leadership, both clergy and laity.

Saturday 24 May:
“Anointed by the Spirit of the Lord”

What do you do after your heart is warmed? On this final evening, the Aldersgate Service will be celebrated with Dr Watson preaching to commemorate Wesley’s heart-warming experience on May 24, 1738, and how he proclaimed the gospel for the next five decades, forming the societies that would become the Methodist Church.
