The Churchill College Association is about bringing together Churchillians who share hobbies, sport and cultural interests.
Common interest groups
Our common interest groups include rowing, golf and rugby, creative writing, visits with Churchill Connections and, thanks to Frank Maine (G60), a passion for orchids. Our new London group is launching a lecture series and Churchillians in Cambridge are getting together for drinks.
Groups like this are a great way to keep in touch with each other and the College. If you like to join us or set one up where you are, please get in touch.
Churchill College Boat Club
The Churchill College Boat Club was founded in 1961 and is open to all members of the College. It emphasises the social aspect of rowing as much as the physical side – members can row as much or as little as they want and are invited to events throughout the year.
Alumna Rosie Johnston U73, novelist, poet and journalist, has been writing since 1992 and offers free writing courses at Churchill College. The Churchill Writers usually meet in the Churchill College Club Room on the middle four Saturdays of each term from 3:30pm – 5:30pm. However at present the group meet approximately once a month virtually over Zoom. The sessions offer the opportunity to write in a safe, positive environment, either for yourself or with the intent of publishing. Everyone who has a Churchill College connection of any kind is welcome and the group sessions are free of charge.
Orchid Appreciation (virtual group)
Frank Maine G60 has been growing orchids and competing in shows for numerous years and is a member of the Central Ontario Orchid Society and the Southern Ontario Orchid Society. He is keen to share growing tips and photographs with other orchid enthusiasts.
