Good Turnout for West Memorial Trust Lecture
Approximately one hundred people turned out on a cold November night for the 2021 West Memorial Trust Lecture in Belfast. The speaker was the Revd Dr John W Yates III, Rector of Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Yates spoke on the sufficiency of Scripture; “How Do We Hear God and How Do We Know It is God Speaking?”
Yates, son of the former Rector of The Falls Church in Virginia, the Revd John W Yates II, earned a PhD from Cambridge University before becoming a research assistant for John Stott between 1996-1999. He was a prominent speaker at the GAFCON Conference in Nairobi in 2013.
The West Memorial Trust Lecture series is named after the late Revd Clive West. For decades he was a mentor to younger clergy and prominent conservative evangelical churchman. Previous speakers have been: Ashley Null, Mark Thompson, Philip Jensen, Vaughan Roberts, and Michael Nazir-Ali.
