Some things you never thought to ask about Strive
So what is it?
Strive is a bunch of Christian guys who want to have fellowship with other guys, sometimes that will be overtly Christian and often it will be purely social, like our curry club.
I’m not a Christian so it’s not for me.
We were set up by Christians but we are a men’s group, if you’re a guy you’re welcome and if you don’t want to join the God squad stuff that’s ok with us. You can probably still throw a dart, eat a curry and pretend you think Jeremy Clarkson is an idiot.
So what do you do?
Well we meet for the pure joy of meeting together for food or sport, we invite other guys to come and talk to us about issues we care about and we mix those things together. We also study the bible and pray together for those blokes who want to do that. A lot of it is managed on the www so have a look at http://strivewarminster.wordpress.com/
Is this just another example of the CofE being anti women?
Do you honestly think that the men of Christ Church would have an idea on their own? We already have a number of women’s groups in the church.
O.K I’m interested but I’m not part of your church.
That’s great; this is not a Christ Church or Anglican initiative; it’s just guys trying to get together. We have Anglicans, Baptists, Roman Catholics and Atheists; we even have an Evertonian!
