Seminars & Reflection Days


At the core of every person is a deep desire for authentic love and human greatness. Despite this innate desire for good, many young people make poor sexual decisions. A casual attitude towards sex increases the probability of negative outcomes, such as sexually transmitted infections, unplanned pregnancies, abortion and emotional heartache.

Real Talk presentations illuminate the idea that what we do with our body is of great significance especially when it comes to sexual intimacy. We encourage young people to be critical consumers of media messages and to respect the dignity and value of every individual. Fundamental to every session is the notion that it is only in truly valuing yourself that you can experience happiness. We help students to realise that in living out biblical principles in relation to love, sex and marriage a person can live the kind of life God intended for them, a life to the full. (cf: Jn 10:10)


Love and Life

Love and Life is Real Talk's flagship presentation/day. These sessions break open topics surrounding sex, relationships, self worth and personal identity.

Using dynamic testimony, video content, creative learning, audience participation and discussions these sessions encourage students to value authentic love and to see the deeper meaning of sex.
The Love and Life seminar explores:

  • Self worth
  • Making good choices
  • The important of our bodies and our actions
  • The media and how relationships and body image are portrayed
  • The repercussions of poor sexual choices (year 9+ only)
  • A biblically based approach to relationships
  • God's awesome plan for love, sex and marriage

The idea of what it means to be a real man is much maligned in today’s world. We encourage and challenge students to develop their character by making good, and at times hard, decisions. Stronger illuminates the idea that men are defined by the choices they make.

Tackling the big issues like pornography, relationships and bullying, the presentations encourage the participants to be men of character whilst affirming the dignity of women. Like muscles that give physical strength, character and success are propagated through good training and hard work.

Stronger calls forth a higher standard for the men of tomorrow.

Getting Real in the Digital World

Never before has the digital world brought with it so many risks. This topic is getting more and more difficult for educators to handle. From sexting to bullying, pornography to tech-addiction the problems keep arising.

Real Talk will provide a seminar experience that truly impacts lives, leaving a lasting impression in a compelling, interactive and personal way.

Giving more than just advice, Real Talk will relate these topics back to the human person and how at the heart of healthy tech use is an understanding of life as a gift and seeing each and every person as being created for love, respect and dignity.
