The Men’s Breakfast group normally meets from 7:30am to 9:00am on the second Saturday of the month, at St Thomas’s Hall. Visitors are always welcome. Contact our organiser, David Baker, for details.
From April 2020 our breakfasts moved to Zoom, and we started meeting on the other Saturdays at 10:30 for virtual coffee. This continued in 2021.
From April 2021 we started meeting out of doors for ‘real’ coffee on the fourth Saturday. From August we are returning to St Thomas’s Hall for breakfasts, with the possibility of joining on Zoom. For Zoom details and other queries about the programme, email David Baker.
In addition to our Saturday breakfast programme (see below on this page for dates, topics and speakers), we also run the following:
An annual weekend away (from Friday to Monday, normally in June). There is a video of our 2019 weekend in the Lake District here.
Occasional day trips to a place of interest (such as the War Cabinet rooms, Bletchley Park or even the Ypres battlefields).
And evening specials (such as curry nights and film nights).
Here is the programme for 2021 (Breakfast theme ‘The B-List: Unsung Heroes of the Bible’). So far it only includes breakfasts and the walking weekend – other activities will be arranged and added later (dinner out, film evenings, fish ‘n chip supper, leading a service at St Martin’s, days out …).
