Recharge Men’s Event

DATE: Thursday 26th March
TIME: 7.00pm
LOCATION: The Oaks, Neutral Bay

What does it mean to be and live as a man? Is it the hopeless picture we have in Homer Simpson? Or the macho figure of Chuck Norris? It’s a question our society is grappling with, as people expose “toxic masculinity” and call on men to do better. Clementine Ford, a bestselling Aussie author, critiques male power, abuse, privilege and entitlement. Jordan Peterson, now an international name, argues that the ‘masculine spirit is under assault’.

At our Recharge Men’s event, we’re going to explore this question from a Christian perspective. We are blessed to have Al Stewart as our guest speaker. Al has been teaching the bible for 30 years. He is the director of Geneva Push church planting, was the chairman of Katoomba Christian Convention, served as a bishop and now works with the City Bible Forum. 

Recharge is on at 7pm Thursday March 26th at The Oaks, Neutral Bay. Tickets are $25 and include gourmet pizza. Click here to register now - bookings close Wed 19th March; our last Recharge event sold out and we don’t want you to miss out!

Many members of our church have taken part in this training and have found it enormously helpful with many applications beyond their involvement at church.    Here is some feedback:

“This course helped me see the value in listening and how hard this is!”

“I have referred back to my notes often since doing the care course – the content was both biblical and practical.”

“Di Morgan is a fabulous teacher – I learnt so much from her wisdom about care.”

One of our distinctives here at church is “Real Relationships”.  This course provides you with an opportunity to see how you can contribute towards the shape of how we care for each other here at church and beyond.  Please take the opportunity to learn some skills that you will apply every day in every conversation you have with a friend, a neighbour, a family member, your work colleague etc.
