Notts Churches Indoor Cricket League launched
The Ministry of Sport is delighted to launch a brand new indoor cricket league, aimed at encouraging friendly sporting competition and community between churches in Nottinghamshire.
The Notts Churches Indoor Cricket League will be 8-a-side and take place over 8 Fridays at Bar Lane Community Sports Centre in Basford, starting on 1st June and culminating in a finals evening on 20th July. Players of all ages, abilities and genders are welcome to join in - the focus is on fun participation. Why not get a team from church organised? Better still, invite friends or neighbours to make up a team, as a way of bringing them into the extended life of the church.
When: 7pm-9pm (matches 1 hour long) on Friday 1st June, 8th June, 15th June, 22nd June, 29th June, 6th July, 13th July and 20th July
Where: Bar Lane Community Sports Centre, Basford, NG6 0JA
How to book: Complete booking online here, or contact Rob on 07775 687682. Please note there is space for only 8 teams so don't delay!
This is just one of the many events the Ministry of Sport has planned this year. The full list of events can be viewed here. However, for all these plans, these tools will only be useful for building God's Kingdom if they are picked up and used faithfully by us, the Church in Nottinghamshire. This will take effort, sometimes pain - sport teaches us that there is no victory without sacrifice. But if we are willing to be courageous and prayerfully invite our sport-loving friends to join in these events with us, who knows what God could do?
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!
