April Men’s Breakfast

Mens BreakfastJoin us Saturday 29th April from 8:15am for our upcoming men’s breakfast.

From 8:15am, Baptist Church, North Row, Warminster (directions below).

We plan to eat about 8:30am, and be finished up by about 9:30, set up perfectly for the rest of the weekend!

This month we have lined up a table-talk;  World Changer: Can you make a difference?

We will spend some time unpacking that with a good healthy debate after a mighty breakfast.  We’ll cover questions like;

Some people have made contributions to the world that have changed the course of human history.

But what would the world look like if everyone made a small contribution to the world in which they spend their time?

You can find more details about table-talk here.

If you are planning to come along, please let us know so we can get enough sausages; either phone Si Pope (01985219688), email strive.warminster@gmail.com or comment on this post.

PS we don’t charge for our breakfast, but a donation of £3 is suggested.  If you can’t afford it, that is absolutely fine, please join us anyway.

See you there!

Strive Film Trip – Hacksaw Ridge

hacksawridgeWe’re planning a trip to Odeon Trowbridge to see Hacksaw Ridge.  If you fancy it please do join us Thursday 16th February, meeting at Christ Church Hall Warminster at 7pm, or at the Trowbridge Odeon at 7.30 pm.

If you are planing on coming, let us know by commenting on this post or emailing strive.warminster@gmail.com and we’ll know to expect you.  Odeon tickets will be about £10.

Hacksaw Ridge sounds like an amazing film.  Check the blurb from the film company;

HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss [Andrew Garfield] who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

…and given 5/5 by our friends over at CVMen – Hacksaw Ridge – CVMen Review

If you need further persuading here’s the trailer;

Perfect chance to invite your mates to see this thought-provoking film!
