Our monthly 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.

CVM Weekend 1st – 3rd November
We plan to take a group to the CVM (Christian Vision for Men) weekend in the Nottingham area (approx. 1 hour car journey). Held at a lovely country house hotel it is essentially a bigger and much grander version of our own Getaway weekend. There is a range of top flight speakers dealing with various topics, options on specialist subjects in smaller groups and worship sessions led by Graham Kendrick and his band. It’s tremendously uplifting, inspiring and appropriate whatever stage of your Christian journey. Swimming pool, snooker table, various games, top rate food and extensive grounds for strolling. Prices start at £199 now but rise steadily over the spring and summer. Contact Peter Marshall 07845 722965 for info or to register interest.
Faith & Fellowship. Small discussion groups
If you have any questions about any aspect of Christian faith then we offer ad hoc and informal meetings at times to suit your own diary. If you think you might be interested then please contact the Parish Office (775652), or any member of the clergy or the Thirst teams.
