Cheshire Churches Golf Tournament


The eighth annual Cheshire Churches Golf Tournament was held on Friday 9th June at Heyrose Golf Club.  The winning team (pictured right) were St John’s Hartford with Rick Smethurst and Joan Warburton winning the individual prizes.  The speaker Rob Reed, who worships at St Michael’s Middlewich, awarded the prizes and spoke about his faith lived out through his working life with property company Wright Marshall, one of the sponsors of event, being a media property advisor and his forthcoming marriage.  £2300 was raised on the day and split equally between St Luke’s Hospice and East Cheshire Hospice.

Ven Ian Bishop from the organising committee said ‘it was a magnificent day with some excellent golf played.  But the day is much more about fellowship and faith.  Rob’s brilliantly amusing talk really did ground faith in the realities of ordinary life and hopefully some of those present who don’t yet share that faith will have really thought about what it means.’

The next event is on Friday 10 October 2017 at Heyrose, a Texas Scramble in support of 'Active Hope' and 'Joshua Tree' charities supporting young people with next year’s event on Friday 8 June 2018.
