The main thing that we do as men in the church is the same as everyone else: our Sunday and mid-week services and our Christian lives together. As with ladies, young people, students, international visitors, we also lay on a couple of things particularly for men.
About once a month throughout the year we meet in someone’s house for an hour on a Saturday morning to enjoy a full English breakfast and discuss a few short pages of a book that we’ve been reading to encourage one another. Together we’ve read books such as Lundgaard’s The Enemy Within, Athanasius On the Incarnation, and DeYoung’s The Whole in our Holiness.
The Big Breakfast
Twice a year, we meet for a catered breakfast in a hotel on a Saturday morning and invite friends to come and hear about the gospel. We invite a variety of speakers to talk about what they do for a living and why Jesus matters to them. We’ve recently had: a soldier, a head-hunter (which, disappointingly, turned out not to be a type of soldier), a journalist, a businessman, a parliamentary draughtsman, a Formula 1 racing car engineer, and next up will hear from a business coach.
