Latest News:

An update from the East...

As was stated in the last update, momentum is slowly building, with Area Coordinator's (AC's) & small groups now understanding that the only way we can effectively 'Bring a Million Men to Jesus' is by discipling our men through resources like 'The Code' to go out & 'Have a Go for Jesus'.

"Men are coming up to me and saying,`I can Have a Go for Jesus`"
Ian (Church Leader, Colchester

"Simon inspired us and men are still telling me they are `Having a Go for Jesus` in the workplace, family & friendships. Weeks later this stuff [still] works"
Giles (Church leader, Ely

"The message is so simple with Simon, I am inspiring the whole church to go out and `Have a Go for Jesus` . This is how we will win the million men"
Chris (Church Leader, Bishops Stortford.


We had over 25 guys representing over 2000 at our first CVM Regional Day in Cambridge, the feedback has been great and many guys were inspired, encouraged and challenged by the day. Our guest speaker, Phil Shaw, leader of Kings Church Cambridge, showed us what we can achieve if we Trust in The Holy Spirit.

We had over 50 guys at our second 'Cross City' meeting in Ely. Our AC for Cambridge, John Loaker, gave the talk.

Our second `Cross City` event in Chelmsford saw our AC Adam Temple lead the meeting.

CVM were heavily involved in the 'Walk Worthy' Christian Men`s Conference in Colchester. I was the `Keynote` speaker and we had over 200 men standing up, linking arms and declaring to be `Kingdom Men` to `Have a Go for Jesus`.

Area Coordinators

We welcome: John Loaker - Cambridge, Mark Mellice - Bishops Stortford, Tony Francis - Harwich, Keith Garrell - Hitchin

Regional Directors Note

It is a real privilege to work with the guys in this Region and it is really encouraging to see our AC's: John Loaker, Adam Temple, Steve Hensley, Nigel Baldwin, Renton Baker, Andrew Caldicott, Simon Fenn and Tony Francis, all out speaking at breakfasts & encouraging the men.

In the pipeline…

There's more 'Cross City' stuff, Kingdom Men Conferences and a meeting of the 'Christian Petrol Heads'. Paul from 'Faith Fuelled Racing' & Alvin (CVM's Motorsport man) getting together with Iron of HCC Hitchin.
We are not just making a difference… we are making an Impact…!!

Stay Blessed Guys
