Men’s Day at CCK

October 12th, 2009


On the 21st November CCK are hosting a Men’s Day for all men in CCK at the Clarendon Centre. The day will run from 9am to 2pm and include a generous buffet lunch.

Joel Virgo and John Groves (Lead Pastor of Winchester Family Church) will be preaching and worship will be led by Stuart Townend. The day will include a Q&A session and further news about our upcoming Men’s Weekend (May 21st to 23rd 2010).

The day costs only £5. Please follow this link to book in.

The potential ramifications for a good gathering of CCK men at this time in our history are huge so I want to do all I can to ensure the optimum impact. The more men that gather the greater effect the day will have for the mission Jesus has given us. Please make this day a priority in your diaires and book in now!

In June 2009, Joel Virgo begins a new preaching series studying the book of Titus.

Titus was a Greek who accompanied the apostle Paul on some of his travelling. He would have had to cross cultural boundaries for the sake of mission and stand bravely in a tough and sometimes hostile environment.

The letter from Paul to Titus (which has become the new testament book Titus) handles some gritty issues of church building and mission in the real world. In Titus’ case it was Crete, a culture filled with serious challenges and difficulties – like ours. Paul calls him to remember who he is, what his message is and what his noble calling is.

This series of talks by CCK elder Joel Virgo is scheduled as follows:

7th June // Gospel Leaders

21st June // Gospel Deniers

28th June // Gospel Men

19th July // Gospel Women

26th July // Gospel Workers

6th September // Gospel Spreaders
