The Going Against the Grain national men’s day tour kicks off in Redruth in October. It’s part of our 2018, UK wide, series of regional men’s days that will aim to tackle questions Christian and their non-church going mates often ask;

  • What does it mean to live as a Christian man today?
  • Isn’t this God stuff for weak men who need the crutch and support of a faith in God?
  • How do I move away from frustration and disappointment in not getting the adventure that this life promised me?

Plus, other relevant issues.

Perhaps you aren't a Christian and want to know what this life of faith in Jesus is all about, and what it costs! Maybe you have been a Christian for years but have found yourself blunted by frustration and disappointment in not getting the adventure that this life promised you.


This series of regional men’s days will aim to tackle these questions and more. Based on our 2018 book of the same name, the ‘Going Against the Grain’ men’s days will examine how men can radically discover the call on their lives to be Christian men today. Using examples of characters from the Bible who went against the grain and not only lived incredible lives but turned the world upside down.


“[I was] challenged to seek what God may have for me in the next stage of my Christian journey. Also, being with a group of other guys worshipping God together was uplifting. The bacon rolls were pretty good too!”
Steve, Sutton (Going Against the Grain, London attendee)


At each event we’ve seen fellas commit for the first time to follow Jesus as well as a load of guys fired-up to live out their faith.
