The New Hope Men’s Group exists to:
- build men who are happier, more balanced, stronger and peaceful
- be a place where new men to the church can find mates and get to know more about Jesus and the church
- promote a feeling of spiritual enthusiasm
- ‘Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ’ Gal 6:2
We meet once a month on a Thursday from 7 to 9pm in the Men’s Den out the back of the church.
- Every man has value – in our eyes and those of God; ‘Every man’s a champion’
- Honesty – be real about yourself, be prepared to challenge a mate who is doing something wrong (‘as iron sharpens iron’)
- Authentic manhood from a biblical perspective – God is our father who loves us and Jesus is the ideal role model for manhood
- Mateship – we will be there for each other, especially when things get rough
- Ethical – we don’t speak or act violently with women, children or each other
- Broadly based – where men of all ages, origins, backgrounds and at whatever stage in their ‘walk’ learn from each other.
