The singing is the first thing that strikes you. To hear so many male voices at full volume in joyful praise to God was very exhilarating and moving. The convention is strongly Bible-based and exists to stimulate men's ministry in local churches. We were welcomed into this splendid atmosphere by Richard Coekin who leads the Dundonald church in Wimbledon. From Hebrews 10 Richard emphasised the goals of the convention - to call men to the gospel of Christ, to teach men the evangelical faith of Christ and to encourage men to live for Christ.
