Firbush retreats are organized and led by Robert T. Walker. Firbush retreats are designed to make the best theology accessible to as many people as possible and especially those not trained in theology and often not familiar with routine technical terms. They combine times of worship and prayer with reflection on a theme related to Torrance theology.
Firbush Retreats are usually held bi-annually at the Firbush Retreat Centre of the University of Edinburgh, located on Loch Tay in the Scottish Highlands. For a list including speakers for #1-19, see Bruce Ritchie, #2021-BR-1.
