The Sports Mission Pack 2018
Get the resource >
Free resources to help you reach sportspeople in your local area. Provides an amazing opportunity to reach sports people in your local area through putting on events like a sports quiz or a 5-a-side tournament. We have a selection of resources available for you to use in your sports club, church or school.
Available to download following completing a registration form at www.sportsmissionpack.co.uk. This gives you access to many helpful resources to help a church host a big screen sports event (perhaps for the FA Cup final, Wimbledon or the International Athletics Championships), a sports quiz, lead assemblies, encourage the church, show evangelistic films and run a sports tournament.
Churches who want to reach out to people, of all ages, in their community who are interested in sport.
The download is comprehensive and includes all you need to run different sports outreach projects, including publicity materials and video clips.
More than 10 million people play sports each week in the UK. This resource is to help Christians reach out to these people through sport with the gospel.
The notes for each activity are concise and clear.
It would best be led by people who enjoy sport, and want to share the gospel with those who haven't responded to it.
The materials are professionally produced and will work well in most situations.
The content is thorough, covering everything needed from equipment, venue needs, sports instructions as well as the actual hosting of an event. There are also short videos, available to download separately, which present the gospel clearly in a sports related style. A few of the pdfs are incomplete, but overall the material is excellent.
This depends on which activity you want to stage, or how many. It could be as straightforward as creating some publicity for a big screen event and then setting the equipment up. Or it could be to hold a local sports tournament, which would take more preparation.
Christians in Sport offer plenty of support and will even help you run your event and provide evangelistic speakers. Visit their website: www.christiansinsport.org.uk.
It is built on the idea of gathering people together to enjoy sport.
If you enjoy sport, you will enjoy all of these activities!
Very. The material is designed to inspire you to be creative, whilst also providing sufficient content to be simple to lead.
This is low level evangelism and so the emphasis is on building friendships, whilst giving an opportunity to respond to the gospel.
Most of the Christian content is personal testimony, often of well-known sports people. There are references to a few Bible verses in some of the videos and also in the assembly outlines, but the main focus is on testimony.
The Bible verses are relevant and explained well.
This is done simply and effectively.
That God made all things and therefore that includes sport, and there is a desire to explain the gospel using sport.
This is an evangelism resource and so points to Jesus and trusting in him.
Each activity has a point in it where the gospel is clearly explained, and leaves people with a chance to ask questions of their friends who brought them.
It helps people to realise that God is interested in sport and in each person's life.
The connection with sport is well done and would not be embarrassing to lead.
This is a great tool to encourage church members to share their faith naturally in the context of sport.
Some events could be run across the community, especially hosting a sports tournament or visiting a school to deliver an assembly or lesson.
Some of the material touches on the good and bad of sport, and highlights some of the temptations of sport such as drug use, cheating and anger.
It encourages groups of Christians to make a difference together, where they live.
