Preston Men’s Group

We are a small group of christian men (mainly Catholic) and have been meeting, as a faith sharing group for nearly 20 years.

The group goes by the name of Preston Men’s group and meets on the first Saturday of the month from 8.30 for a drink and toast etc with the aim of making a start at 09:00 and finishing by 10.30

The group exists to support men on their journey of faith and as well as reflecting on scripture we have input tailored to topics from a men’s perspective.

The meetings are very informal and 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. We then finish with some prayers of thanksgiving and petition.

The group is led by Greg McCrave.  You do not need to book or contact Greg beforehand to take part – just come along.  However, if you want more information then you can contact Greg by using the form below.

We suggest a donation of £3 per session to help meet the running costs of the Centre.

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.
