Expanding Sports Chaplaincy
- after 25 years
In September 2016 Sports Chaplaincy UK celebrates 25 years of providing chaplains for sports clubs across the UK. With over 350 chaplains in professional, semi-professional and amateur sport sharing the love and compassion of Christ with players, staff and supporters, there is much to thank God for.
But the work of recruiting, training, placing and supporting chaplains still has some way to go. The vision is to see fully equipped chaplaincy in every sports club in the country and specifically over the next 3-5 years some 1,000 chaplains in UK sports clubs.
On the video David Chawner, Chair of Sports Chaplaincy UK, gives tells more about ways to be involved. Then take a look at the website www.sportschaplaincy.org.uk
to see how you and your church may be able to support or be directly part of in this expanding ministry directly into the world of sport.
