The idea of the Argyll Convention originated in the APC Kirk Session and was established under the work of a number of churches in Oban and the surrounding area.

It is now a non-denominational body, and its aims are:

  • to promote Biblical teaching
  • to present the challenge of the gospel in the teaching of Jesus Christ
  • to encourage Christians to adhere to the whole counsel of God as revealed in the Bible
  • to emphasise God’s call to practical obedience to his Word including missionary responsibility
  • to assist people in developing a greater understanding of the Christian faith and heritage including its local context

It was launched in 2013 and hosts a gathering annually.
