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 

Curry Night – Tuesday 3rd July 2018   

We are making a return visit to the Memories of India restaurant in Farnham Common, a venue which has proved very popular over the last few years.  Even if you are a little wary of eating curry, you can be assured that the menu will have been carefully chosen so that there is something for everyone.  We will commence at 7:30pm with drinks from the bar and start our 2-course buffet at 8pm.   Our speaker will be Manoj Raithatha, a guy who appeared to have it all, a booming property business, a picture-book family, and the power to shape his destiny – a life to envy.  Suddenly, his world fell apart, catapulting him into a different direction.  Manoj has been a teacher, a BAFTA award-winning TV writer, a successful property entrepreneur and an author.  He was born into a Hindu family in Kenya and first heard about the Christian faith when he was at school.  It was not until many years later that he became a Christian and today heads up the South Asian Forum (at the Evangelical Alliance) which was formed to unite and connect the South Asian Christian community.  In 2008, the financial crisis devastated Manoj’s property business and a sudden illness threatened his son’s life.  He found himself utterly dependent on the prayers of others and the help of a previously unknown God.  What happened next would forever change his life and the lives of all his family.  Please join us for a tasty curry and to hear Manoj’s amazing story.  Following his talk you will have the opportunity to purchase his autobiography entitled “Filthy Rich” and the evening should finish at approximately 10:15pm.  For more information and to book your place, contact Tony Shortman or Nigel Lowe (see above for contact details).

Tring Brewery Visit – Thursday 27th September 2018

Come and join us for a return visit to the Tring Brewery (in Hertfordshire). We visited the brewery just two years ago and enjoyed it so much, a return visit was needed! We will be given a conducted tour which includes a lively talk, a review of all those vital ingredients that go into producing those wonderful beers, and an overview of the entire brewing process. In addition to the conducted tour, there will be a fish and chips supper plus a good variety of ales to sample (and you might even want to purchase some to take home as a souvenir).  If you have not been before, please do join us (and invite your friends along too). Transport to the brewery will be provided and we will be leaving Stoke Poges soon after 6pm and plan to arrive around 7.15pm.  For more information about this event and the men’s group, contact Tony Shortman or Nigel Lowe (see above for contact details).
