The Fellowship came into being in 2019 when a number of men decided that the Ladies weren’t the only ones who could meet up to socialise, network, discuss issues of the moment frivolous or serious, and to think through the problems of society from the standpoint of Christians today.
Since then, we have blended the serious and the light hearted into our programmes in a contrasting series of events. Emerging from the confines of Covid lockdown in 2022, we have planned a threefold programme which involves:
- occasional breakfast meetings addressed by interesting speakers on their faith (not necessarily Christian), their careers or their life experiences.
- A walk in the Surrey countryside with time for reflection and a pub lunch.
- Visits to places of interest which may be a Cathedral or a brewery or whatever.
2022 is already very active; the Men's Breakfast in February was walked off by a damp March Walk from Shere to Little London.
April saw a most interesting and enjoyable day out at Brooklands Museum and we hope to be addressed by an Iman from the Woking Mosque in May. Plans are maturing for a visit to Southwark Cathedral and Dicken’s London later in the year
Our activities attract numbers varying from a dozen to 30 or so. It is very democratic in considering new ideas and autocratic when it comes to the detail. The basis of our being is Christian, but we welcome anyone of any or no faith. You just have to be polite in debate, open in argument and prepared to help with the washing up.
