The Men’s Fellowship is a group that meet together to enjoy fellowship, cultivate friendships and – from time to time – share lunch. We welcome all men of all ages whether they are able to attend once or regularly. We hear from a variety of SPEAKERS and these meetings generally alternate with our LIFE APPLICATION BIBLE STUDIES.
All meetings are at 10:30am on Fridays in Stafford Room 1 unless otherwise stated. We gather from around 10:00am for tea and coffee. You will be made most welcome at any of our meetings. For more information on any of the following meetings please contact the Secretary, David Wilson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
