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 Dinner – Friday 23rd November 2018

Our next event is the annual Men’s Dinner at the South Buckinghamshire Golf Club (in Park Road, Stoke Poges).  The bar in the Oak Room will open at 7.15pm and our meal will begin at 8pm (its buffet style, catering for a wide range of tastes).  Our speaker is Charlie Styles, a guy known to many of us, who was the curate at Stoke Poges Parish Church for a couple of years.  Before he came to Stoke Poges, he was a fast food waiter, youth worker, charity fundraiser and landscape gardener.  Charlie describes himself as a mistake-maker, help-giver, patience-trier, local vicar, well-meaning friend, dog-chaser, husband and father of three – sounds like a very interesting guy!  When he left Stoke Poges he was given his own church in Leicestershire (St Mary’s in Lutterworth) – a church whose Rector 600 years ago was the great bible translator, John Wycliffe.  When Charlie moved to Lutterworth, he was the youngest Rector for at least 200 years.  Now five years in, Charlie thinks he might just about know what he’s doing!  During his talk, he will share some of the highs and lows of parish life and perhaps explain what he has learnt about God from lead thefts, midnight phone calls and drug addicts.  Please join us to hear his talk entitled Small Town Vicar.  Following his talk, Charlie will take questions and we should finish around 10:30pm.  For more information and to book your place, contact Tony Shortman or Nigel Lowe (see above for contact details).

Our following event will be a Beer & Skittles EveningDo join us for an evening of fun, food and relaxation, playing skittles (plus Pool, Air Hockey & Table Football).  As usual, the venue will be the main hall in St Andrew’s Centre (in Rogers Lane, Stoke Poges).  We will be providing a fish & chip supper, desserts, beer, lager and soft drinks.  The bar will open at 6:30pm and the first game starts at 7pm.  Everyone is welcome, lads, dads and granddads.  This is always a very popular evening, so do book early as we have a limit on the number of places.  For more information about this event and the men’s group, contact Tony Shortman or Nigel Lowe (see above for contact details).
