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.
Like other clubs, societies and groups, our Men’s Group has had to suspend all activities during the present Covid-19 crisis. We have no idea when the authorities will allow normal service to be resumed, but as and when they do we will have a full program of events ready to go. The next event that we had scheduled was a Men’s Breakfast, but that has now been postponed to a later date. But it is not all bad news - they say every cloud has a silver lining so we will at least all be spared some of Nigel’s corny jokes!
Stoke Poges and the surrounding area is fortunate to have so much help available, both State and voluntary organisations. So if your young and fit, perhaps you could contact your local parish council and see if you can help. Even if you are unable to volunteer then all of us can still do our bit, by following the official advice thereby minimising the risk to yourself and others. So please take care and stay healthy.
When the current restrictions are lifted, you will find details of our next two events listed here. If you wish to contact someone about the men's group, the primary contacts are Tony and Nigel:
