To delight in God’s love and share it with others

 Church Life 

Men's Ministry 

The men’s ministry is committed to encouraging men across the Benefice to play a full part in the life of the church. Our aim is serve those who care for and depend on us, to participate in the Great Commission to make Christ known, and to enjoy ourselves!

It has been a busy year with much cause for thanks. A weekend of teaching and fellowship in the Cotswolds in the Spring of 2016 was a notable and enjoyable event. The Autumn Cotswold Men’s Convention with Rico Tice was a particular highlight and an opportunity to join with other churches in the North Cotswolds Gospel Partnership. December saw the launch of the monthly Saturday morning Men’s Breakfasts which have been well attended and have followed a series of talks on “Men Jesus Met”. An Invitation Breakfast was an opportunity to share the Gospel with men for whom it was fresh good news. Smaller groups of men are meeting to pray together and study the bible to encourage and strengthen one another in the Faith.

A 2017 activity programme including a Summer BBQ, trips to the Rugby, Clay-pigeon shooting and local walks has been planned to add interest and variety. A termly prayer meeting is also in place to seek the Lord’s blessing on our endeavours. We very much look forward to the year ahead.
