A dedicated men's ministry, why would we need that? I could just say why not, but maybe some statistics will help.
Over the last 20 years 38% of believing men left the church. In fact for men aged under 30, nearly 50% left in the same period of time. That’s believing men deciding they don’t want to go to church anymore! (from Christian Vision for Men)
The Men's Ministry at Chase Family Church is aimed at providing opportunities for men to meet together, share life experiences, learn about their faith and have fun together. We feature:
Men Breakfasts - a high cholesterol breakfast accompanied by orange juice, banter and a speaker (low cholesterol breakfasts available, but you still get the OJ, banter and speaker). Sometimes breakfast morphs into a barbeque, check website for details.
Bible4Blokes - bible study with a manly twist. (More info below).
Mens Days out
Bible4Blokes is our monthly men’s evening with some food, banter and a good old fashioned chin wag.
Normally a man from the church will share or lead a discussion. However we have been know to have guest speakers from other churches or from men’s ministries like CVM (Christian Vision for Men). These can be testimonies or shorter talks allowing time for more discussion.
We have a time at the beginning to chill with pool, table tennis, two-course meal and a beer beforehand. Although we do not charge for you to attend a small donation of £5 is suggested to help cover the costs of the food and drinks.
