This is a unique opportunity to experience Ellel Ministries training locally in the Hunter region! 

EXPLORE (Newcastle 2024) is a series of monthly weekend courses designed to train and equip God’s people to help meet the needs of others on their healing and discipleship journey.

Through the EXPLORE (Newcastle 2024) Course we discover that there is hope and help for the issues people struggle with in everyday life – issues of anxiety, stress, physical pain, emotional distress, problematic relationships, addictive behaviour, depression, and more. Through this course, we also discover what it means to live in a closer relationship with God and as a part of His Kingdom family.
