Men's Convention

We live in uncertain and changing times.

The Men’s Convention planned for May 2020 is POSTPONED.

We had already set aside dates for a special Men’s event in September for the return visit of Carl Beech and we are planning to meet as a combined Men’s Convention / Carl Beech event on that weekend. So please put the weekend commencing Friday 18 September in your calendar.

If you have booked for the May Convention your booking will automatically be transferred to the September date unless you instruct us otherwise.

Please pray for us as we seek to plan ministry for Men in these changeable times.

Thanks for your understanding.




The Men's Convention is a great time for men to meet and be challenged from the Bible to live out faith as men. This program includes a Friday night session with main sessions and seminar options on Saturday.

2020 guest speakers: Martyn Iles (Keynote) & Al Stewart and Pete Sorenson

Welcome: We men love a challenge, but hate being beaten by it. It can now be tough being a Christian with lots of criticism and more, but God promises to sustain us with His word, His love and the power of the Holy Spirit. Join us for a refresher on our Unstoppable Hope.

Martyn Iles - Martyn is the Managing Director of the Australian Christian Lobby. ACL desires a compassionate, just and moral society through having the public contributions of the Christian faith reflected in the nation's political life. Martyn studied his Bachelor of Laws at the University of Queensland, graduating with honours, and studies a Master of Laws at the ANU. he works at a top-tier law firm before moving to ACL and is deeply concerned about equipping the church and young people with scriptural foundations for life in our changing culture.

Al Stewart - Al has been in Christian ministry work for 35 years. For a lot of his time he was an Anglican minister. He now works with City Bible Forum in Sydney, talking with "Suits" about Jesus. He is married to Kathy and has four grown up kids, and a couple of little grandkids. Interests; time in the bush, running and physiotherapy exercises.

Pete Sorenson - Pete became a Christian thanks to the faith of a mum, the courage of a mate and the persevering grace of Jesus. For the last 11 years he's served as a Campus Team Leader with the AFES university mission. He's been married to Erica for 20 years, has four great kids and on days off enjoys cutting all electronic acess to the outside world - unless in the form of televised sport...
