In this Olympic year, Mark Blythe a London 2012 Torch bearer was our special guest speaker. Mark spoke of how things aren’t how they first appear in sport and life. He said that as his life has had different twists and turns, circumstances made him reassess what he thought he knew about Jesus, the Church and the Christian faith. He was surprised at what he found, and how excellent it was. He challenged us all to explore the truth behind Jesus for ourselves.
Eventual winner Julie Eady from Leigh Road Baptist Church said, “We had a great relaxed day of golf and friendly competition, I’d recommend golfers out there to enter and come and play next year!”.
