Men’s breakfasts continue

Whether it is the men’s breakfasts or bikers’ breakfasts, fellowship with early morning fayre at a village church is gaining something of a reputation.

The recent, quarterly, men’s breakfast at Knowle Green Church proved to be another well attended event with males of all ages joining together to hear speaker Walter Crick from Manchester talking about rural men in modern society.

Church pastor Chris Okpoti says it is important to hold male only gatherings “to encourage men to get together”.

He believes many don’t have another man to talk to and the meetings provide the opportunity for them to meet and discuss issues important to them, as well as inviting speakers along too.

He said: “It is nice to have men to share things with, as many men can be very lonely.”

Topics include marriage, love, the state of the nation, issues in the country and international affairs.

All are always very welcome - breakfasts are free - and the next such gathering will be in the Sunday School behind the church on Saturday, May 10 from 9am-11am.

Anyone wishing to go along is asked to give Chris a ring on 01254 878394.

Everyone at the church is also looking forward to the restart of the monthly bikers’ breakfasts in March.

Similar to the idea behind the men’s breakfasts, it was felt motorbikers might also enjoy a similar sort of gathering, so almost six years ago, the church launched the increasingly popular bikers’ breakfasts.

These are held throughout the spring and summer.
