Arena Mens Ministry

Welcome to the Arena Nailsea homepage. We hope you like the new name which is designed to bring all our activities for blokes under one clear umbrella. There is plenty to get involved with and all of them are open to all.

By far the best way to keep in touch with whats going on is to connect with us on Facebook.

Bike to Breakfast

Every other month on a Sunday morning a group of guys who enjoy cycling go out on the bikes, enjoying a hearty breakfast, before returning home before lunch. An early start but well worth it! Contact Trevor for more information.

The Big Breakfast

Every other month we meet at the Old Farmhouse pub in Trendlewood estate on a Saturday morning to eat a full english breakfast and listen to a guest speaker. All for just a fiver! Contact Dave to find out details of the next breakfast.

Monday night fitness

Is exactly what it sounds like. Meeting in Backwell Schools sports hall for an hour and a half of circuits and volleyball. Join us after for a swift pint in the Old Barn pub. Term time only. Contact Dave for more information.

Nailsea Mountain Rescue

The Nailsea Mountain Rescue Team is the excuse we tell the wives to obtain a late pass.  We meet up at a pub in one of the surrounding villages to Nailsea, meeting at 2000hrs.  We then spend a couple of hours chatting over a beer or two before departing for home between 2200 and 2230 hrs.  We then use the local footpaths to walk back through the countryside to Nailsea.  Ideally the walk will take between 1 and 1.5 hours to complete.  Walking boots are recommended as some of the paths can be very muddy.  Social members of the rescue team can arrange for transport to take them from the pub, home.  The walks are held on the last friday in the month in Mar, May, Jul, Sep and Nov.  The annual dinner is held on the last friday in January at the Old Farmhouse in Trendlewood, when partners are invited to attend.

Contact Tim for information on the next meeting and for more information on the Annual Dinner.
