A place for blokes to be real with each other

After two car loads of blokes from Living Grace Lutheran Church went to a Murrumba Downs ‘Shed Happens’ event, they decided to start their own in North Toowoomba.

“It was about men being real with their stories, victories and battles in an interview format,” said Chris Kassulke. “It was inspirational.”

“I felt in my spirit to start up a ‘Shed Happens’ in North Toowoomba and it was launched in September 2014.”

“It is a place where men get stuff off their chest in a safe environment and we have a big feed too!”

‘Shed Happens’ meetings are not limited to a tin shed one night a month. They can happen anywhere at any time.

While the North Toowoomba ‘Shed Happens’ runs every 2nd Monday of the month at the Old Dairy Farmer’s Building on Brook Street, ‘Shed Happens’ Glenvale runs every 3rd Wednesday of the month at ‘The Shed’, 100 Glenvale Road.

Both provide a great opportunity for men to get together and encourage each other by being real. 

According the Chris, the critical element is awareness of other men and sensitivity to what they are going through.

“It’s non-judgemental and just a safe place to share stories,” said Chris.

Shed Happens North Toowoomba - 6:30pm every 2nd Monday of each month

Shed Happens Glenvale - 6:30pm every 3rd Wednesday of each month

Both: $10 for working men
