What a feast of football we have ahead of us this summer as the World Cup takes centre stage. As 32 teams battle it out to be crowned the best on the planet at Russia 2018, millions of sportspeople across the UK will be gripped by the action. For a month from the opening match on 14th June, the World Cup will quite simply be hard to ignore as every little story makes big headlines.
With so much interest in the tournament, the World Cup offers many great opportunities to share the good news of Jesus. And we are delighted to announce that a new multimedia World Cup quiz, an evangelistic short film and a collection of school resources produced in partnership with Scripture Union have been released to help churches do just that.
The mission of Christians in Sport is to reach the reach the world of sport for Christ. And with more than 10 million people playing sport each week in the UK across 150,000 clubs. we’re passionate about helping the church reach them with the gospel.

If you see something that you would like to post on another website, however, please get in touch so that we can help you.
