Benefice of Whitchurch Men’s Fellowship

Gerry Ambler ( Men’s Fellowship Chairman ) writes:

We have been running pretty well continuously [ in this same format] for the past twenty years – and for the previous twenty years before that [ as the CEMS – the Church of England Men’s Society ] – but not so well organised! I believe we are now the only functioning similar organisation in the Diocese. Our membership – all male – is of mixed age – but consists mainly of seniors!

We regularly manage 20-ish men each month,
but we owe our continuity to our President , Canon J.H.L.Rowlands.

We meet on the 2nd Monday of each month. We start with a Eucharist at 6.00pm, followed by supper at Whitchurch Golf Club, often with a guest speaker.  Meetings usually last about two hours.

We used to rotate the venue for our Eucharist Services between the four churches, but now they are usually held in St Mary’s Parish Church.

We aim to publish our programme for Spring 2016 soon, so watch this space!
