Sports players

Whether you train and play for a club, coach, referee or a combination of all three, the Ministry of Sport is there to support, encourage and equip you as you seek to be an effective witness where God has placed you. Often it feels like we’re the only Christian in our team, so we want to help you get connected with others in similar situations to you. The first step is to get plugged into the Ministry of Sport network - get in touch with us and we’ll buy you a coffee.

A really helpful mantra to remember as we seek to impact our sport for the Gospel is ‘Pray, Play, Say’, based on Colossians 4.2-6, as this short film explains >

I'm the only sporty person in my church - how can I persuade them of the benefits of sports ministry?

The Ministry of Sport puts on a load of great sporty events throughout the year that you can invite team mates along to, like sports tournaments, guest speaker events and sports quiz nights. See what we’re up to on our events page.

What can the ministry of sport do for you?

The Ministry of Sport can support you, either as an individual or a church, by supplementing local church programmes with sports-specific opportunities to equip, pray, invite and network. Please submit the enquiry form to get involved and to be kept up-to-date with events.
