Ministry of Sport internship

The Ministry of Sport is delighted to announce Laura Fowkes as the Sports Ministry Intern for 2017-18.

Laura, 27, who takes over from Ben Wildman in September, says: "I can't wait to work alongside people that are passionate about spreading God's love through sport. It's going to be an exciting journey where I hope I'll learn more about God's word and how to use the skills and gifts he’s given me. I'm ready and willing to put myself out there and to challenge myself in this internship so God can use me for his purpose".

Laura will also be part of the diocesan Younger Leadership College, as well as accessing great training from Christians in Sport.

"I love sport" she explains, "especially being apart of a team. Working together, adapting to each other and using my own skills within a team is the part of sport I really enjoy". In her free time Laura enjoys socialising with family and friends, cycling, swimming, bowling and climbing.

Please join us in praying for Laura, and for Ben as he moves on to his next challenge. You can watch Ben's reflections on his 2 years with the Ministry of Sport here:
