January 2012 ~ Christian Golf Society | Church Golf | National Church Golf Cup in partnership with CVM

Our Website and the National Church Golf Cup 2012

Happy New Year. We are looking forward to a great year out on the Golf course with many regional qualifiers and county cups in the early stages of planning for 2012.

We are actively looking for more churches and golfers in churches to organise a cup in their county in 2012. If this interests you please do get in contact with us for more information.

You can also visit our Organisers Area to download our handy organisers guide – this will help you see what’s involved. It’s currently the 2011 guide which will be updated shortly along with the rest of the site. However it will give you an idea for now.

Please bear with us as we update the website for 2012, and do make contact with us to enter a team in your county cup or find out more about being a volunteer organiser.

Do visit our new Facebook page and ‘Like us’ we are hoping to reach over 25 friends so we can get an easier to remember Facebook web address. You can help please ‘Like us’.  

Other Events: The Followers Golf Society 2012 Dates

The Followers Golf Society is for Christian men to come together for a game of golf and a time of fellowship in the Essex Region based around Colchester. They play about five times a year having a round of golf, a meal and sometimes, when available a speaker.  All of this costs between £35 to £40 pounds per golfer.

It was in 1998 following an Alpha course that the truth dawned on me about what being a Christian was all about. Then, over a period of time, I grew to understand God and know Jesus. It wasn't an instant transition, rather a slow recognition that my life was changing and for the better too. It wasn’t long afterwards that I wanted to publicly acclaim my faith, and was baptised at Leigh Road Baptist Church (LRBC) in November 2000.

Ever since, I have sought to use my God-given talents wherever and whenever possible to share the fantastic Good News. Using these skills along with a big passion for golf, I helped the team form the Christian Golf Society.

I play the game regularly and at one stage a few years back managed to get my handicap down to single figures.  Alas, it now hovers around the 12-13 mark!

I met Julie at our church (LRBC) and been married for nine years. We now live in Leigh-on-Sea. She too, is a keen golfer and both actively serve as members at LRBC.
