We hold regular breakfast events, especially for Men of all ages and backgrounds.  A Full English Breakfast will be followed by (we are sure) a thought-provoking talk. 

Our next event will be on Saturday 19th January 2019, 08:30-09:30am in the Lower Hall at HPC.

We will be joined by Richard Haddow who will speak briefly afterwards.

Richard Haddow used to be an atheist. Or at least, he wanted there to be no God, because then he could make up all the rules himself.   However 15 years ago, when he was reading books by leading atheist professors, like Richard Dawkins, explaining why belief in God is both stupid and dangerous, to his surprise Richard Haddow changed his mind.  Today he is a committed follower of Jesus Christ.  Come along and hear his incredible story of how he found faith in the God he never wanted to believe in.

To sign up please email or add your name to the main church hall list (available closer to the event).

We look forward to welcoming you then! 

Please note that for catering purposes, the latest date for signing-up to this event will be Wednesday 16th January.


Summary of Selected Previous Breakfasts

HPC's very own Paul Andrew took to the front to explore the question:  “Does Rich + Famous + Sex = Happy?”  Drawing on his observations from Numerous Celebrities he has worked with over the years (who in varying capacities have included Chris Moyles, Robbie Williams, Jason Donovan and Kylie... and many more).           He helpfully paralleled what he has witnessed firsthand with the secret Bible story of the guy who tried Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll… (Hint: you can read about Solomon's "investigations" in Ecclesiastes 2:1-11)

We were joined by Professor Stuart Burgess from Bristol University.  He gave an engaging talk on the subject of intelligent design and where he sees the work of a designer in our world.  As Professor of Engineering Design, and with some 20 years experience in academia, he is extremely very well placed to show how the make up of our universe points to a creator God.

He outlined some of the amazing physical features and abilities of the human body that makes us unique within the animal kingdom, and which helps to disprove the popular theory that mankind has evolved from apes, or amoebas or bananas.  He also explained how our appreciation of music and the arts, our creative talents and grasp of complex language, for example, all points to the the fact that we have been Over-Designed - intended to be more than mere spear throwers, or just simply surviving to procreate.
