Men’s Breakfasts are an opportunity for men of the church to meet together and get to know each other a little better. We normally meet at 8:30 am on the second Saturday morning of each odd-numbered month (January, March, etc). Until March 2020 we have been treated to excellent cooked breakfast, but…
…with the outbreak of the Coronavirus these obviously had to be curtailed, so a meeting via Zoom was trialed for the May meeting. This turned out to be a great success with more people than usual joining us. The first meeting was free-form, allowing people to chat about their experience with the pandemic to date and was very helpful. At this meeting we decided to meet via Zoom again a month later, in June. This too was successful and we then decided to meet this way every month, while the virus continued to limit meeting together in person.
We also decided that a new rota be set up to allow each session to be organised – each month two people were responsible for arranging content. This has included quizzes, visiting speakers and discussions. Each meeting has continued to be interesting, informative and thought-provoking.
Derek has provided excellent technical support with setting up and administering Zoom for each of the sessions.
During 2021, Zoom sessions will continue at 9:00 am on the second Saturday of every month until we are able to meet together face to face. At that point we will probably revert back to a two-monthly meeting arrangement. We look forward to them continuing in 2021, whatever the format. Men of all ages are welcome to join us. Please use the form below and someone will get back to you.
