Struthers Memorial Church run two one-week residential camp events each summer, in July and August at Gartmore House in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park in Scotland. These camps comprise daily morning and evening meetings with concurrent meetings for children as well as afternoon activities. Attendees can choose from a variety of on-site accommodation (with meals provided), bring their own caravan or tent to pitch in the adjacent grounds or just visit for specific meetings.
Our conferences are for the deepening of spiritual life, and we welcome all who would seek to find more of God. People interested in the baptism in the Spirit, healing and deliverance are particularly invited to attend and many have found that God has met them in significant ways and their lives have been permanently changed.
