It’s so easy to lose our focus as Christian men and get bogged down in the routines of life. But God has something better for us.

Graham Beynon will help us see that it’s the future that shows us who we really are and how we should really live.

As Christian men we can live differently now, because of our new identity in Christ – we belong to the day to come, we’re strangers here. We live differently now, because we don’t live only for this life anymore.

Come to encourage one another as men to catch the vision of living in the light of our identity and destiny in Christ.

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.

How to be men with a fully-functioning emotional life

Graham Beynon

Emotions can be wonderful things we love, or horrible things we hate – depending on how we’re feeling at the time. But God has made us to feel. So we’ll be thinking through the place of emotions, how we view them, handle them and glorify God with them as men.

Sharing Hope in a Hopeless World

Dave Bish

Jesus is coming back. That’s reality. That’s good news for everyone who trusts in Jesus. What does that mean for those who don’t know Jesus? How can that shape the decisions we make about how we live in this world? How can we speak about the hope that we have?

Teach us to number our days

FULLY BOOKED

Matthew Sweeting

We live in a culture where death is the last taboo. Often we find it’s a topic that’s considered inappropriate in polite company. But as Christian men we believe that our Saviour has defeated death, removing its sting and curse. So we’re going to talk about death. We’ll help one another to think about living in the light of our own deaths and about how to help others too.

Keeping our Heads in a World of Scoffers

Steve Baraniak

Waiting for Jesus’ return will mean living very different lives, which can provoke responses from those around us. In the face of difficult questions or, increasingly, scorn and scoffing, our temptation is to retreat and hide or compromise and assimilate. In this workshop we’ll explore how we might begin to respond and help each other to be ready to give an answer, reminding each other that the gospel is good news to keep on proclaiming!

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.
