Our men's social gathering

Thirst is a time the men in our church to meet, socialise & have a drink in a relaxed environment. We look  to extend both friendship and faith to the men in our community and networks, whether sceptics, inquirers or people with faith in Christ, our men’s ministry aims to engage men across this spectrum, and to encourage Christians in their faith.
