There are activities at St John’s going on to meet the needs of men of any age. This includes m/net and the Harborne Men’s Group. The church hosts special teaching events, and often welcomes guest speakers to these events.
m/net is the name for the Men’s Groups that have grown up over the last ten years in St. John’s. There are currently four groups, of around a dozen men, meeting once a month on a Monday, Tuesday or Friday evening in people’s homes, for Bible Study, discussion and prayer.
The groups are made up of professing Christian men, mostly married with kids, each facing similar pressures and issues in their Christian walk. The groups are small and informal in structure, with members taking it in turns to “chair” a discussion. Each group has one or two leaders, who organise the group, and are accountable to the St. John’s leadership.
Different groups have different “flavours”, some following a thematic course of Bible study, while others discuss a Christian perspective on topical issues we all face.
We come from a variety of Church backgrounds, but all hold to the core teachings of the gospel, and believe that the Bible is God’s inspired word. Most members of m/net are members of St. John’s C Groups, and see the two groups as being complementary.
For further details, please contact Richard Kent or Ben de Waal.
Harborne Men’s Group
This men’s group meets once a month on the first Thursday morning at St. John’s. We meet for coffee/tea and a talk on a Christian theme. Occasional social events are also arranged.
A warm welcome awaits any men who are available to accept this invitation.
