When so much of our time is absorbed by the trivial, it becomes ever more important to ask what we're going to leave behind.


This year at the St Michael's Centre in Bristol on Saturday 15th October we'll be considering what it looks like to be men who build things that last. We're going to ask the question: as men following Christ, how and what should we seek to build in our families, workplaces, communities?


We want to be men who leave behind a constructive legacy of communities and homes deeply shaped by the gospel, of churches built up in the Lord Jesus. So whatever your temperament and gifts, whatever your life stage or situation - join us to think together about how we can be men who labour for that which lasts.


What will we leave behind as men?


What will we build?

How to get there

The St Michael’s Centre is in Stoke Gifford on the northern edge of Bristol. It’s a brilliant, modern venue with a 500 seat auditorium and lots of space, located a few minutes’ drive from the M4, the M5 and the M32 motorways and a few hundred metres from Bristol Parkway railway station.

There are parking spaces for disabled drivers right outside the building. There is some on-street parking available in Stoke Gifford and there are hundreds of pay-and-display spaces in the station car park just around the corner.
