Explore Format

What does an EXPLORE course look like?

EXPLORE is held at Ellel Sydney on a beautiful property located in Menangle, south-west of Sydney. It is held over a series of weekends. 

Ellel Sydney

Standard Weekend Format (Friday - Saturday)


Each EXPLORE weekend begins with registration from 6.30pm. The evening session starts at 7.30pm with worship and teaching and concludes with supper at around 9pm.


A mix of worship and challenging and inspiring teaching sessions alongside times for personal reflection and group discussion. This will include an ‘encounter’ session with opportunity to respond personally to the teaching and receive prayer ministry from our Ministry Team. EXPLORE will finish after the final session on Saturday evening at around 9.15pm.

Optional SUNDAY: 

We are happy to bless our EXPLORE students with the option to stay over on the Saturday night after the EXPLORE course. Please let Reception know when you would like to take advantage of this. Breakfast will also be available on Sunday and we ask that our guests head off the base by 9.30am. Please note: our office is not open on Sundays.

Online Option - In 2023, Ellel Sydney will be livestreaming the EXPLORE 'A' courses via Zoom. Notes and worksheets will be emailed prior to each course along with a Zoom link. For the third weekend on Forgiveness and also for the final workshop, we ask that online students come to the Ellel Sydney base in Menangle.

…So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10

The wonderful thing about EXPLORE is that God doesn’t just work during the events themselves but continues His work during the time in-between. The EXPLORE notes booklets will also include a journal with activities, questions, worksheets and scriptures all designed to help you continue to grow and receive from the Lord in your own time.

Each of the events in the series will include time for worship, fellowship, biblical teaching, personal reflection, group discussion and an encounter time where prayer ministry will be available.
