Regular Events and Programs

The Centre for Men run a number of events and programs during the year to support men and their families.

BBQ nights at Brookfield

SSizzleBBQ nights are held at Brookfield that are a great introduction to the Men’s Rites of Passage, and the journey of illumination that men are invited to travel. This is ideal for men who are hungry for more ‘meat on the bone’ of their own journey in life, who are disappointed with life and what they have been sold in male spirituality.

The nights start at 6.30pm and conclude by 8.30pm and include a sausage sizzle and a talk by CEO Richard Fay on an aspect of the male journey. Email the Centre for Men for more details. The dates for 2017 are:

  • Monday, 20th February
  • Monday, 10th April
  • Monday, 19th June
  • Monday, 6th November

fireThe Program is a unique five-day / four night soul-transforming experience that builds on the classic patterns of male initiation through simple and moving rituals and teaching. The purpose of MROP is to initiate men into the second half of life, as elders and learners in their communities.

MROP is not like any other men’s retreat, but life-changing event that can only be experienced once. Click here to read more about MROP 2017.
