Five Solas Reformation Conference

The Last Puritan - 27–30 July 2023


Living as a Reformed Christian in a Fallen World

Charles Spurgeon, commonly known as the prince of preachers, was mockingly called the last puritan by his enemies. He lived in 19th century England during the rise of secularism and when the authority of Scripture began to be questioned. Today we experience the same difficulties living as reformed Christians in a fallen world. But how should we respond to that and what can we learn from Spurgeon's example?

Join our conference to find out!
