Monday Morning Men’s Meeting

Monday Morning Men’s Meeting

We meet for talks and discussion, at Emmanuel Church, Forest Road, in the winter, and at St Mary in Charnwood, Nanpantan, in the summer. 

Meetings usually begin with coffee at 10.30am but please note there are some later and earlier start times and alternative arrangements. We usually finish meetings at noon. Special events during the year include lunches in March and October, a picnic (in June this year), and outside visits in January and August. Ladies are invited to some of our meetings but all men are welcome to all our meetings. 

A contribution of £1 is suggested for every meeting at Emmanuel and St Mary’s, to include tea/coffee, biscuits, speakers’ expenses and occasional fees.

Heavenly Father,

We give thanks, as we meet this day, for the friendship, fellowship and support we share with each other.

We pray for those of our number who cannot be with us today, for whatever reason.

We look to you for strength in the travails of our daily lives, knowing that your love is freely given to us all.

Merciful Father, guide us and bless us in all that we say and do, this day and every day.
