The Path to Praus

A journey for the brave few who want to be great men.

This is not a cookie-cutter approach to masculinity.

Every man is unique.  Created fearfully and wonderfully by God with a distinctive calling, personality, set of gifts and abilities.  No story is identical and no destiny is the same.


That's why we do not believe in a 'cookie-cutter' approach to masculinity.  The Praus Movement(c), which encompasses our Gentle & Strong Programme(c), has been carefully developed to help you become you.  The you that God so painstakingly created you to be.   

Of course, we will delve deep into the non-negotiables - the characteristics and principles all men need - integrity, purity, courage and so on - but in such a way that helps you to bring all of that great strength and power of yours under control for the betterment of others. 

Be warned:  This journey will not be easy.  You may have to go to places that you may not want to go to in pursuit of healing.  You will need to face up to your weaknesses, your past and the things you fear.  The road to 'you' will be tough.  But we promise it will be epic, fun and transformative too.  

Blessed are the praus for they will inherit the earth.

Bootcamp & BBQ

Proverbs 4:7 - The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.  Though it cost you everything you have, get it understanding. 

Every month, you are invited to Urban Crofters Church in Cardiff to hear from great speakers to equip you with the knowledge and wisdom needed to help you in your journey to becoming a great man.  

It will be inspiring and tough in equal measure.  The courageous men who attend will be rewarded with a BBQ.

Proverbs 4:7 - Carry each others burdens.  In this way you will fulfil the law of Christ.  


There is a crisis among men:  loneliness.  Very few of us have a band of brothers, a tribe, a group of guys that we can turn to when life gets tough e.g. when our marriages are failing, when we are stressed at work, when we are at risk of a moral failure.   So, once you sign up you will be added to what we at Urban Crofters call a 'DNA Group'.  In these groups you will take deep dives into the Bootcamp and BBQ content.  How you do that is up to you - you are free to grab dinner, go for a hike, go fishing, whatever works for you.

The Ten Tenners

John 10:10 - "The thief came to steal, kill and destroy.  I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." 


The Ten Tenners group exists to help men reconnect with adventure.  "Adventure", as the author of Wild at Heart John Eldredge writes, "with all its requisite danger and wildness, is a deeply spiritual longing written into the soul of man."

We have seen the transformative effect of nature and adventure on men, and so, we created the Ten Tenners to take you out into the wild once more.  

Campfire Meal

Jeremiah 6:16 - Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.  

We bring men together for fellowship, fun, adventure and sanctification.  Be sure to attend one of our special events.
