How can we be men on mission and men of prayer in an age when the tide against God and His truth seems so overwhelming?

As 21st century men, we are faced with many calls on our limited time and energy. We’re also bombarded with many distractions too. What should we prioritise as men living for Jesus?

Raymond Brown will be opening up the book of 1 Timothy, written to encourage a Christian man to keep his life tuned in to the gospel of God our Saviour and to encourage him to call other men to the same passion.

Come and be helped, encouraged and challenged to live as a man in line with the trustworthy message of a God who came into the world, to save sinners like us!

speaker

Raymond Brown

Raymond was born in Birmingham to West Indian parents and grew up in London after living for a short time in Jamaica. He worked as a secondary school teacher in Tower Hamlets and Harringay before training for ministry at the London Theological Seminary. He has been involved in leading church plants in Durban, South Africa and south east London. He has recently become the senior Minister of ELT Baptist Church in east London, having previously been the assistant minister there from 1998-2002. He is married to Rebekah and they have four children.

Workshops

We’ve a selection of engaging workshops to explore deeper the themes raised in our main talks. You’ll need to indicate your choice when booking.

Race and church in the UK

Raymond Brown

Does racism exist in the church in the UK today? Is racism individual or systemic? And how might this impact the way we view and relate to one another in our church and who is selected for leadership in our churches? We shall look at the Bible and help each other to explore these and other questions in a safe space, where we can ask questions, while speaking our minds in an atmosphere of acceptance, love and grace. And without fear of falling foul to political correctness.

Thinking global while serving local

Michael Prest

How might being engaged with what God is doing globally inspire us where we are? And how might we recover a heart for world mission that springs naturally from what we’re doing right here? In this workshop Michael will encourage us to be on the front foot as local churches, finding our place and playing our part in God’s wonderful global purposes.

Growing as men who pray (when we find it hard!)

Jeremy Brooks

Paul wants men specifically to pray, in every church, in every place. Yet prayer is often the part of the Christian life that we as blokes find hardest and can feel like failures in. This workshop will help us to see why that is and how we can become men who pray ‘for all people’, and encourage us as men to keep at it together!

Youth stream

We’re delighted to be able to offer a youth stream (14-18). The teenagers will join the main sessions but have their own dedicated workshops before and after lunch, led by experienced and DBS checked youth leaders.
