In 2008, we had the first study conference for men. This came at the request of some young men who were studying for the ministry but they had a whole range of questions that they wanted to ask concerning their new found reformed convictions. This conference has continued one year at a time. If you are a man and you would like to join us, here are the details of this years programme.
