Sports Mission

Connecting people’s passion for Jesus with their love of sport, using this wonderful and unique mission God has given us to make a positive difference in people’s lives.

Making Disciples through Sport

Within The United Kingdom Territory with The Republic of Ireland, we are encouraging people to look for and think about ways that they can use sport as an arena for mission.

We are trying to empower volunteers to connect their passion for Jesus with their love of sport, providing fresh opportunities of ministry which is opening new doors and beginning new relationships in the lives of people within communities across this country.

We have the opportunity to serve and connect with every city, town and community through people’s love of sport and play. But we have to be willing to commit to the sizeable task that is ours of trying to make disciples through sport.

When you hear the three words READY, SET, GO does it make you think of the beginning of a competitive race? In the sports movement these three words describe ‘our’ race of following Christ and making disciples through sport.

Ready

Ready is the process of gathering and envisioning people to make disciples through sport and play, within our denomination and beyond!

Set

Preparing and equipping everyone to be a disciple maker through training weekends, gatherings and at events across the country.

Go

Giving everyone strategies to get out into our communities and make a positive difference using sport as a mission tool.

His passion and belief is that people can change the world bit by bit by creating positive environments in their own ‘square mile’ through sport and play. His aim is to help our church engage with sport and inspire a long term legacy of sports mission and ministry.

“Sport has the power to change the world, it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way little else does. It speaks to people in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers”. – Nelson Mandela
