Breaking Free

Breaking Free is a journey to completeness in living and is available to everyone.
Why is it that things we pursue in life don't provide the anticipated fulfilment or outcome?
  • The "perfect" marriage is not finishing the way it started!
  • Once beautiful kids now create heartache!
  • The perfect new home hasn't made life any better!
  • The promising career isn't so promising after all!
  • More money has not brought security!
  • The new car has not provided the hoped for significance!

And you can probably add more.


Life in general can suck any person into a vortex of uncertainty from which escape seems impossible!


Breaking Free examines the reality of this incompleteness - why it is and how we can break free to live a life that is complete and satisfying; far beyond the emptiness of the life into which we were born.


Breaking Free will bring God into your situation and you will discover what it is to Abide in Him (John 15). He alone is The Way to freedom!



Geoff will share from his own life's experience:

When we look back over the years, it is clearly evident that only God could have provided Geoff Hopson's "chance" encounters with wonderful Christian teachers such as Bob Hobson and Dr Michael Wells, who not only helped him discover the incompleteness in his own life, but also became friends and mentors to him.


What followed was a remarkable journey of faith and a personal relationship with Christ that set Geoff free. During Geoff's time as Principal at Capernwray Torchbearers Bible School in Moss Vale NSW, and later as pastor to a rural congregation, a vision was forming to share his Christian life discoveries with others, who like him, had struggled in their Christian journey; and like him wanted to Break Free!


In 2000, through God's remarkable provision and a giant step of faith by Geoff and his family, Mount Alford Lodge was acquired. Thrtough God's continuing provision it has developed into a beautiful retreat where "the weary can find rest" and teh ministry of Abiding Life Discoveries Australia (ALDA) can continue to share the life changing thruths of a life Abiding in Him.


Breaking Free is based on very sound Biblical principles originally formatted by Dr Michael Wells from his experiencess over 30 years of ministry in over 180 countries across more than 90 denominations ( It begins and ends with Jesus Christ as revealed in John 15.
