Exciting new programme launched
The Ministry of Sport's brand new Fixture List 2018 has been released, with 20 events overall, and several new innovations to engage sports fans in the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.
Headlines include the opportunity to be try some American Football drills with (and hear the testimony of) Nottingham Caesar's Head Coach Barry Boseley on 3rd February at Harvey Hadden Sports Centre, a new Par-3 Golf Afternoon on 21st April at Ramsdale Park GC with sports chaplain Baz Gascoyne, and the ever-popular sports quiz, this year at Toton, Nottingham City Centre, Arnold, East Leake, Calverton and Hucknall.
Game On is back in the form of an exciting 5-part series, launching on Friday 20th April at the historic Long Room at Trent Bridge, and the summer months will bring us our annual Golf Day, 5-a-side Football and Tennis Tournament. With the FIFA World Cup happening in Russia, we'll round off our summer with a World Cup Final BBQ on Sunday 15th July.
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 in 2018?
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!
