A 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.

Curry Night – Tuesday 16th May 2017
This is an event you will not want to miss – our annual Curry Night. 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 are making a return visit to the “Memories of India” restaurant in Farnham Common, a venue that has proved very popular over the last few years. We will commence at 7:30pm with drinks from the bar and start our 2-course buffet at 8pm. Our speaker is Simon Allaby, a guy who is switched on to modern technology and knows how to use it when sharing his Christian faith with others. Simon was ordained in 1990 and has lead a number of churches since then. In 2009, he established the 6:19 Trust to help other Christians around the world to share their faith with those they live and work with. More recently, his 6:19 Trust has launched its own APP called Turn the Page, which delivers to its users two challenging stories each week about issues of life and faith. Simon, who is an associate evangelist with J.John’s Philo Trust, describes himself as an engaging, humorous and contemporary speaker. In addition to his speaking engagements throughout the UK, opportunities often arise to speak overseas (in Nigeria, Pakistan, Colombia and across Scandinavia). Please join us to hear Simon’s talk entitled “Turn the Page Live”. Following Simon’s talk, he will take questions and we plan to finish no later than 10:30pm. For more information and to book your place, contact Tony Shortman or Nigel Lowe (see above for contact details).
TANX Evening – Saturday 8th July 2017
By popular demand, we have invited TANX to return to St Andrew’s Centre in Stoke Poges for another evening of tank battle games. Once again we will be in teams of four (with each person operating a scale model WW2 Tiger 1 tank) playing this great Radio Controlled Tank Battle game. Each of the eight tanks has an infra-red battle system for tank to tank combat and its own on-board computer controlled system which also reproduces the sounds and actions of a real tank. During the evening we will have a fish & chip supper and desserts. All drinks will be included in the price (beer, lager and soft drinks). The bar will open at 6:45pm and the first game starts at 7pm. Everyone is welcome, Lads, Dads and Granddads. This is always a popular event so book early as we have a limit of 40 places. Please put this date in your diary and plan to join us for this fun packed evening. For more information about this event, contact Tony Shortman or Nigel Lowe (see above for contact details).
