Fellaship - Men's Group
Fellaship is a men's group run by the men of Christ Church that focuses on enjoying activities and exploring topical and relevant issues that connect with men's lives today. It aims to build friendship and faith in a relaxed and informal atmosphere of social activities and get-togethers. One of the great strengths of fellaship is its diversity of membership, with its common foundation of men experiencing similarly demanding lifestyles. It meets for breakfast on a Saturday morning on alternate months, with a varied programme of social events and meetings. We also have a monthly meeting for prayer. We have enjoyed curries, quizzes and speakers on a wide variety of topics. Anyone wanting to get involved in fellaship or just wanting to keep up with what's going on, should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Alan Dye via the Church Office.
Men’s breakfast – Saturday July 20th 8.00 – 10.00am
“Faith and Football”

Linvoy started his career in 1990 at Charlton Athletic, and over an 18 year period was a senior player at Charlton, Barnet, Reading and finally at Portsmouth, where his career came to an end through injury in December 2009. The Milton Stand at Fratton Park, Portsmouth was renamed “The Linvoy Primus Community Stand” in honour of his outstanding services to the club.
Linvoy released his autobiography in 2007 entitled “Transformed” and as well as being joint founder is actively involved with the Christian Charity “Faith and Football”.
Linvoy shares his inspirational story of his life in football and how through his amazing conversion to Christianity, he triumphantly overcame disillusionment, lack of self-belief and numerous rejections which led to a life and career that has been totally transformed.
As Linvoy tells of his Christian journey he hopes that his story and life experiences, will encourage, challenge and inspire others to have a relationship, like he has found, with Jesus Christ.
Linvoy was awarded an
MBE in the 2015 News Years Honours list for his contribution to football and
