Adult Groups


Local Men’s Group

The Group was formed in 2013 amongst the men of St Peter’s in Carlton Colville, Pakefield Parish Church and St Andrew’s in the small village of Mutford. The Churches are members of the town-wide Lowestoft Christian Men’s Network (see below).

The main thing to emphasise is that it uses the core support of local members of our congregation in order to reach out to neighbours, friends and relations with a mixed programme of secular and Christian subjects. Where there is a secular topic there is normally a Christian thought at the end.

Meetings are normally held currently at St Peter’s, but have been at Pakefield as appropriate. Meetings are normally held on the 2nd Tuesday’s when scheduled that have included: Our village of Carlton Colville, War Times & Old Lowestoft, Town Pastors, Gideons etc..

Lowestoft Christian Men’s Network

This wider group has been in existence since 2003 and draws support from a wide range of Churches with a mix of denominations, although it is committed to putting forward the name of Jesus with an evangelical message and Constitution.
