Mary Slessor and the Scottish Mission

An illustrated talk by writer and broadcaster Billy Kay.

Billy Kay is the author of The Scottish World and the producer and presenter of several series of fascinating radio documentaries. Here Billy will place Mary Slessor 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. The talk will be illustrated with audio from Billy's 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.
