"Can Sport & Christianity Mix?"
Absolutely! We believe sport is of great value in itself and can be compatible with the Christian life. The sports person can play sport as an act of worship to God; have a positive affect on the culture of the game; and point others in their clubs to Christ. Why not come to Team Talk to explore further?
"Will my Club-Mates be Interested?"
Our personal experience suggests some will & some won’t. There’s no easier way to find out than to invite them to a Sports Quiz. Fun, competitive, good food & a brief sporty talk introducing the idea of the Christian faith.
“Am I the only Christian in my Sport?”
The chances are very slim! Check out the sports networks for more sport-specific events across the UK. For example, the Corinthians RFC is a network of rugby players who tour together & stage events for their mates several times a year.
"Who's Behind the Ministry of Sport?"
The Ministry of Sport is a Church of England initiative. However, the vital people that shape it are the network of players & coaches etc. who are involved in sport around Notts... That could include you! The sports chaplains in Nottinghamshire’s professional clubs also play an important role & our Sport Ambassador, Rob Taylor, works to support all of the above. The ministry is also actively supported by Christians in Sport.
