Free Church Plenary Assembly

It looks like the last couple of days have been momentous for the Free Church of Scotland as its plenary assembly has met to discuss the singing of hymns and the use of musical instruments in public worship.

To cut to the chase, according to David Robertson, “Free Church congregations are now allowed to sing additional materials of praise and use musical instruments” (see link). It is an historic decision.

I wait with anticipation to see what this will mean for the cause of reformed, evangelical Christianity in Scotland.  The way is easier now for a realignment of like-minded churches, having removed one of the obstacles.

Who knows? It may even affect England, Wales and Ireland too.

UPDATE: A statement has been published on the Free Church website.
