Mens’ Conference 2023

22nd – 23rd of July

We invite men to join us for our first Mens’ conference in 12 years. It promises to be a weekend of spiritual blessing, through the preaching of God’s Word and fellowship of God’s people. The 2023 Men’s Conference will be held at our church property in North Ipswich.

A variety of quality Christian books will be available for purchase so don’t forget to bring your wallet. Reserve your place for the Saturday attendance by registering today. Sunday attendance will be open for everyone.

If you are not local to Ipswich please let us know and we can arrange accommodation in our members’ homes.

Theme – Servants of Christ

In a day when Christians are being entertained to death, and largely preoccupied with their own little world, it is no surprise that the subject of serving Christ in all of life is out-of-fashion. However, the theme of being a servant of Christ is prominent everywhere in the New Testament.  Our generation desperately needs Christian men who understand what it means in life to be a servant of Christ and to willingly practice such things.
