Code Unleashed

code-unleashed

Code Unleashed is a chance to get out into the open, have a laugh with some other guys, ‘walk on the wild side’ in the great outdoors, but more importantly spend time connecting with God, maybe for the first time! Oh and of course … eat!

As Christian men, by nature we take our place fighting in a ‘greater battle’. So at the Code Unleashed day, along with your men’s group, mates or just by yourself, we’ll look to deepen our understanding and commitment to serving God side-by-side as a ‘band of brothers’.

It’s also an event you can bring a ‘not-yet-believing’ mate to. Someone who may be ready to take that next step in his journey closer to Jesus, build a fire with you, or both!

You’ll get ‘tooled-up’ to stand stronger in the spiritual battles that take place in our families, work places, communities and churches. Even in our own lives.
