One Day Event
This course is one of Ellel Scotland’s Free Teaching Days and we would love to have you join us.
Popular speaker and author of the book, ‘The Choice – serving heaven or serving hell’, Andy Robinson will be with us to share from his personal experience how God’s power can transform even someone whose life was in the grip of the devil. From homelessness, prison and despair God not only saved him, but also healed and transformed him and has given him a passion to share about the love of Christ and the power that is available to us in the name of Jesus. On this day Andy’s heart is to share about the freedom we have been given in Jesus, to know God as our loving Father, rather than being caught up in either sinful or religious behaviours. Expect a day of encouragement, excitement and challenge as Andy’s life and message testify to the love and power of an awesome God.
And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
Acts 3:16, NKJV
Doors open for registration at 9.30 with the first session starting at 10AM and we finish at 3.30PM.

Ellel Scotland is based at Blairmore House located in the Aberdeenshire Highlands. Its stunning location and warm atmosphere make it ideal for confidential getaways, retreats and re-connecting with God through our courses.

About the Speaker
This course is being taught by Andy Robinson, author of The Choice. Come and listen to his amazing testimony of God's love and grace, and to know more, read his book:
Life was on the up. He wanted drink, drugs, women and the freedom to do whatever he wanted. Every indulgence was satisfied. Andy’s world was a model for youthful pleasure and his freedom to choose. Until one day his world came crashing down around him.
