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 9th April 2019

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 meal at 8pm. Our speaker will be Roger Whipp, a guy who has a fascinating story to share with us. Roger had a long and successful career working for the emergency services, initially as an ambulance driver and then in the Metropolitan Police, stationed primarily in the east end of London. In his early years, the situations he had to deal with seem to make it impossible to believe in God. This was especially true when his wife was involved in a horrendous traffic accident which no one thought she could possibly survive. But when she came back from the dead, it had a profound impact on Roger. During his talk, he will share many interesting and humorous stories from his years in the emergency services, some fascinating details about his wife’s car accident and how this event totally changed him. Please join us for a tasty curry and to hear Roger’s talk entitled “From Cop to Christ”. The evening should finish at approximately 10:15pm.  For more information about this event and the men’s group, contact Tony Shortman or Nigel Lowe (see above for contact details).
