Before his death in 1978, William Barclay agreed to the establishment of a Trust set up in his name which would organise an annual celebration of his life in the form of a lecture recalling the man and expanding on themes he explained so clearly.
This website is published by the William Barclay Lectureship Trust in order to bring his work to the attention of a new and wider audience.
The last Barclay Lecture was delivered in 2009. The Trust now devotes its resources to providing some instructional and inspirational input to the men and women preparing themselves for ministry in its various forms: regular students, auxiliaries, deacons and readers.
The Trust supported a continuing ministerial education event held on November 2, 2012, at Wellington Church in Glasgow. ‘Preaching the Year’ was also sponsored by the Episcopalian Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway’s Centre for Ministry Development and Glasgow University’s Trinity College.
• Chairman: Rev John McIndoe
