This is a ‘Hybrid’ outreach. There is a virtual option (below) if you can't join us physically.

Using sport has proven to be a great way to build relationships in the community; it is also a great platform for sharing about Jesus.  Come and learn how to improve your football coaching skills, run a football outreach and how to make disciples in and through sport.

Do you follow Jesus? Are you also a passionate sportsperson, coach or fan? Did you know that when we play sport or coach we can use this as a unique way to worship the One who gave us these gifts and talents? Also did you know that in and through sport we can bring the good news to others and disciple them to follow Jesus more closely?

Participants will be challenged on their character both on and off the sports field with interactive and practical workshops which will develop them into wholistic sports leaders.

With topics like:

  • Sport as Worship
  • Sport as discipleship
  • Disciple Making Movements (DMM) and Discovery Bible Study (DBS)
  • Football Coaching in a godly way
  • Practical Football Coaching
  • How to run a Football training session
  • Go Strategies
  • Partnership
  • Tools and Resources
