Men's ministry

As the Men of Banwell, we commit to provide opportunities to gather together, to develop our faith and our relationships, and to become representatives of Christ's love and hope in our community and throughout the world. 


In support of the Men's Ministry Mission Statement, the men of our church have made ongoing actviities that we initiate or support at church and in the Windsor/Essex communities. 


Our most visible activity is our monthly men's breakfast where the males of our church (young and "seasoned") gather on the fourth Saturday of each month, excluding August. Starting at 8:30 AM, we sit down to a delicious breakfast from a menu which varies monthly. Breakfast is followed by a motivating and interesting talk given by a church member or selected Christian individuals from the community at large.

On occasion, we will forego the speaker and spend the time supporting the youth of our church in their fundraising by helping them prepare various baked goods. In the community, the Men's Ministry collects and purchases (every second week) healthy food items for the snack programs at Begley Public School (inner city), and more recently, at Marlborough Public School in Windsor West on a monthly basis. During the year, we also conduct the Men's Sunday Service, which helps to strengthen our presence in our church congregation.

In the summer, we sponsor a Men's BBQ, which is a great time for a dinner and enjoyable comaraderie. In the fall of each year, we conduct "The Great Escape," which is held away from the church in an appropriately pleasant environment. Here, we gather for top notch speakers augmented by timely thought-provoking working groups promoting the building of faith in our male members. 


Our ministry, for the most part, is self-funded with funds from our monthly breakfast and our annual car wash in June. We also receive generous donations from individuals in the congregation, for which we are eternally grateful. If you are looking to grow in your Christian faith, meet new and interesting people, enjoy some satisfying meals and have some fun while doing it, we would be more than pleased to welcome you. The Men's Ministry also holds other events throughout the year. Check out the calendar for events that test your physical and spiritual muscle!
