big welcome from the Stoke Poges Men’s Group.  If you have not been to one of our events, then please read on to find out what you are missing!  During the year we run curry nights, dinners, Saturday morning breakfasts, activity evenings (skittles etc.) and visits to interesting venues.  There is something for everyone!  We are not an exclusive group but very inclusive and guys from a wide area (not just from Stoke Poges) come along to our events.  We are open to everyone – guys of all faiths and none are always given a very warm welcome.

At some of our events we invite a special guest who will give a talk on a specific topic, and during their talk they will usually share something of their Christian faith and how it has guided and influenced them during their lives.

Our group is affiliated to a UK organisation called Christian Vision for Men http://www.cvmen.org.uk, who run an annual conference for men and support men’s groups throughout the UK.

Future Events 

Men’s Breakfast – Saturday 23rd September 2017

A great way to start your weekend is to tuck into a hearty cooked breakfast at the Wexham Park Golf Club (in Wexham Street). Coffee/tea will be available from 8:15am and our food is served at 8:30am (in the golf club’s excellent function room). Our speaker at this Men’s Breakfast is Rob Santer, the London Regional Director for CVM (Christian Vision for Men) – the organisation that our men’s group is affiliated to. Rob began his career as a financial consultant and after a number of years he co-founded the Ascenbury Loure Partnership, a financial advisory firm. In 2010, after 20 years as a financial consultant, he felt it was time for a complete change in direction. Drawing upon his wealth of experience in business and his passion for coaching, Rob decided to train as a Certified Professional Life Coach with the Christian Coaching Institute. In addition to this, he felt called to join the Halftime Institute as a Life Coach and as their UK National Director. Rob started a men’s group at his local church in 2003 and this group now serves over 40 churches. In recent years he has become one of CVM’s Regional Directors. Whenever time allows, Rob enjoys playing drums, watching motorsport, photography, running, cycling, etc. Following his talk, Rob will take questions and we should finish by 10:15am.

Men’s Dinner – Friday 17th November 2017

We are making a return visit to the South Buckinghamshire Golf Club (in Park Road, Stoke Poges) for our annual Men’s Dinner. The bar in the Oak Room will open at 7.15pm and our meal begins at 8pm (its buffet style, catering for a wide range of tastes). Our speaker is Simon Pinchbeck, a guy who went from being a respected police officer to a life of crime. Simon joined the Met Police at the age of 18 and soon became a rising star in the police force, driving fast cars and becoming the police boxing champion. His job included policing at the Arsenal where he had many battles with football fans. He was the macho man and thought he was invincible. After 23 years, Simon left the police after being charged with assault. He turned to a life of crime, chasing money and pursuing material things. He had gone from enforcing the law to breaking it! After time, he found himself in a battle on two sides, from his former colleagues and from the crime gangs that he had fallen out with. So, what happened next – please join us for this Men’s Dinner and to hear Simon’s story “From Cop to Criminal to Christ”. After Simon’s talk there will be a question and answer session and we should finish around 10:30pm. This is an event you will not want to miss, so please put this date in your diary now. For more information about this event, contact Tony Shortman or Nigel Lowe (see above for contact details).
