‘Mary Slessor and the Scottish Mission’ – Saturday, 18th April

As part of the Mary Slessor Centenary events, writer and broadcaster Billy Kay will give an illustrated lecture on ‘Mary Slessor and the Scottish Mission’ at the University of Dundee this Saturday.

Billy will place Mary in the context of the Scottish Diaspora and of the Scottish missionary effort which attempted to plant Presbyterianism in places as far afield as Russia, China, Africa and Brazil.

His talk will be illustrated with audio from his radio programmes and will include music from Mary's Duketown Parish Church in Calabar as well as the voices of the daughters of Daniel Slessor, one of the children saved and adopted by Mary.

Free tickets for the event, taking place at the Dalhousie Building at 6pm on Saturday, 18th April, are available from www.dundee.ac.uk/tickets, 01382 385108, events@dundee.ac.uk and Tower Building Reception.
