We meet in the on a Saturday morning from 7:30-9:00am on the first Saturday of each month.. We enjoy a full English breakfastand spend time discussing a Bible passage and praying for one another. It is a chance for young men with bust work and family lives that would struggle to get to evening Bible studies to support and encourage each other as followers of Jesus Christ
To book a place at the next breakfast or to be added to the Men’s Breakfast mailing list phone or email Malcolm Cook.
We hold occasional Breakfasts in the Old School Rooms and invite a speaker.
The aim of the RCMG is to offer the opportunity to all men to meet in fellowship: sharing and learning from life’s experiences and seeking to further develop their understanding of The Gospel and its relevance in today’s world.
The group was originally named Men Behaving Acceptably (MBA) by the founders of the group, loosely based on a TV series at the time and intended to have several meanings (even academic!), but the informality of the meetings often bring a smile to the face of those who remember the TV sitcom with a slightly different title. Whilst maintaining the original objectives and style of the group it was renamed Rothley Church Men’s Group (RCMG) at the start of 2016. The group celebrated twenty years since its formation with a Twentieth Anniversary Dinner held on 21st October 2016 (see photo gallery), with guest speaker Right Reverend Nick Baines, Bishop of Leeds.
Our regular monthly meetings are held on the third Monday of the month throughout the year with speakers from outside and inside the Church invited to speak about their own personal life and faith followed by a question time. The diversity of subjects broached is huge. Some events are based on a forum style to encourage debate around key issues affecting life for men in the 21st century.
The RCMG currently meets at the Rothley Court Hotel in the village where a bar is available and light supper provided as part of the cost of the evening, which is currently £5. For further information about the RCMG please email the Church office.
