Preston Men’s Group
Feb 1 8:30 am – 10:30 am

The group is very informal and generally meets on the first Saturday of the month from 8.30 ready for a start at 09:00 after a drink and some toast etc. We normally aim to finish about 10.30

The meeting comprises two main sections – a reflection and sharing on a piece of scripture from the Gospels (we use the Common Lectionary and the reading for the upcoming Sunday) followed by an input and discussion/sharing on a topic relevant to Men’s spirituality. At present we are working are way through a book called ’52 Men of the Bible’ by Carl Beech

We use this book to dig deeper into some of the men in the Bible. From Adam to Jesus, by way of prominent figures such as Samson and Paul, and shining a light on lesser known characters such as Bezalel and Achan, and explore these men and how their example can affect our lives of faith. We look at Who were they? What would they be like to meet here and now? and How can we relate to them and learn from them?

We then finish with some prayers of thanksgiving and petition.
You do not need to book for these sessions. Just come along and take part.
