Christians in Sport launch sports mission pack
With the tennis and cricket underway, the European championships around the corner, and the Olympics in Rio a few months away, the pack has everything that churches need to make the most of the sporting spirit.
The pack includes a short talk, a sports quiz and a short gospel film to share at events.
Jonny Reid, communications team leader at Christians in Sport says: "The Olympics and Paralympics, Euro 2016 and The Ryder Cup are just a few of the major sporting events taking place this summer that many in your local area will be excited about.
"We know that these major sporting events present great opportunities to reach sportspeople with the gospel.
"So, to help you and your church to make the most of this massive summer of sport and to engage sportspeople in your area with the gospel, we've created a free resource called the Sports Mission Pack 2016.
"What are you going to do to make the most of this opportunity in your local area this summer?"
The pack can be downloaded from sportsmissionpack.co.uk, where you can also find information on how to run sports tournaments, big screen events and ideas for engaging with schools.
