Stoke Poges Men's Group
Time set aside for men to encourage and be encouraged.
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 who run an annual conference for men and support men’s groups throughout the UK.

The next event that we had scheduled was a Men’s Breakfast on Saturday 9th May 2020. The British Government restrictions for Covid-19 mean that it is very unlikely that this event will take place on schedule. We therefore expect to postponed it to a later date. As soon as we are able to announce a new date for this Men's Breakfast, we will do so.
The planned venue for this event is the South Buckinghamshire Golf Club (in Park Road, Stoke Poges). Coffee/tea will be available from 8:15am and our food served from 8:30am. Our speaker is Dennis Pethers, an author, evangelist and founder of the Christian charity “The Rooftop International”. Dennis was brought up in London and came from a background where church did not feature at all. He took a job in the City of London and one day, his boss bought him the C.S.Lewis book, Mere Christianity. As he read it, he suddenly realised that God really does exist! As the months past, he felt God calling him to leave his work in London and train to become a church minister. In 1993, he set up Viz-A-Viz Ministries in the UK and subsequently founded “The Rooftop International” charity, based in the UK and the USA. The charity operates in numerous countries throughout the world seeking to help churches reach out to their communities. The charity has established the The Rooftop Academy, which is an online equipping hub that is integral to The Rooftop Movement and provides resources that equip churches in their outreach ministry. Please join us to hear Dennis’s talk which will be followed by a question and answer session. We plan to finish by 10:15am.
