Since 1984, St. Peter's Church has been running a monthly lunch meeting for men who are around during the day; after 30+ years these lunches continue to be very popular.
Our aim is to provide a relaxed environment for men to enjoy fellowship and friendship together over a 'home cooked' lunch, and an opportunity to hear and respond to the Christian message through Christian 'after lunch' guest speakers or appropriate entertainment. Some talks are now recorded so you can order a CD or download*
and listen again!
