Further to attending a Christian Vision for Men (CVM) event in 2014 we decided to take the advice given, “form a men’s group and do stuff together”. Stuff we’ve done since includes:
A walk through the Larigh Ghru, which crosses the central Cairngorms and is one of the best known hill passes in Scotland. A truly classic walk followed by a beer in the sun and fish & chips
Other walks including a Bennachie circuit, Donmouth to Newburgh and Newmachar to Ellon – all great days out, invariably followed by a meal
Whisky tasting event
Brewery tour, complete with tasting
Scotland vs Ireland international rugby ay Murrayfield – our group’s Irish contingent were very happy….
Starting up a men’s singing group
All of these events have enabled men within and outwith our church to meet and to get to know each other.
Moving forward, there are opportunities to do more of the same and/or other events e.g. wine tasting, fishing, camping, movies, gigs, etc - but these are our ideas. What we’d really like is to get an idea of activities you want to try in the future.
