As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.(Prov 27:17)
Thorpe Acre church has been running men's ministry since for many years. It's an opportunity for blokes of all ages connected with the church to support each other, relax and let their hair down (though for a few that can be a challenge!). Colin and the team, pictured, have been organising interesting talks and fun activities and serving up cooked breakfasts throughout the time of the ministry.

Obviously 2020 was a challenge with the global pandemic preventing regular meet ups, but things have been held together through online (Zoom) meetings and this has even allowed the group to connect with guest speakers from further afield than would normally be possible. We are looking forward to getting back to face to face meetings.
The main parts of the programme are ;
- Men's Breakfast (bi-monthly)
A full English breakfast or veggie option (on request) normally followed by a guest speaker.
- Men's Night Out (in the alternate months
Maybe a film or a games evening, often with a food element (watch out for the curry nights!). A night for guys to chill out and have fellowship together.
- Days Out (as and when)
We are always on the lookout for things. We have attended the Men’s Conference “Release” and had a day out at Moto Fest.
Local men are welcome to join us, even if they aren't regulars at Thorpe Acre church. If you would like to get in touch, find us on Facebook or leave your contact details with the church office (see the page footer) or drop us an email.
