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 14th April 2018

A great way to start your weekend is to tuck into a hearty cooked breakfast.  Coffee/tea will be available from 8:15am and our food served from 8:30am. Our speaker will be Nigel Lowe, a guy who is well known to most of you and is recognised instantly because of his blue eyes!  He moved to Stoke Poges in 1967, so is almost a native now!  You may also know that Nigel is a builder and has been running his own business for 56 years.  He was recently advised that with a couple more years of practice he could seriously consider taking it up professionally!  He has also been a very active member of the Stoke Poges Parish Church over a long period of time and most recently has held the position of Church Warden, managing in his own words, “not to sink the ship!”.  Nigel, along with Tony, has been running the Men’s Group since it started in 2005.  At almost every Men’s Breakfast, Curry Night and Dinner he has welcomed and introduced the speaker and told what might be loosely termed a joke!  He sometimes follows this with “It’s a great relief that our speaker has arrived, because otherwise you would have had to listen to me for half an hour.”  Well, the chaps who help run the group finally decided to call his bluff and give him the job!  During his talk, he has promised not to tell too many “jokes”, so there will be time to hear how he came to believe that Jesus is for real and how that has impacted his life.  Please note that we have a NEW venue for this Men’s Breakfast – it is the South Buckinghamshire Golf Club (in Park Road, Stoke Poges, near the junction with West End Lane).  For more information and to book your place, contact Tony Shortman or Nigel Lowe (see above for contact details).

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.  This will be followed by a talk from our speaker and we will finish no later than 10:30pm (details of our speaker will be available nearer the date).   For more information about this event and the men’s group, contact Tony Shortman or Nigel Lowe (see above for contact details).
