Australia is built on sporting communities, so it’s essential that churches invest in them and connect with them. Sporting clubs are fast becoming the place of social connection for many people.
Sports Chaplaincy Australia estimates that each sports chaplain, on average, connects with 500 people. That’s 500 athletes, club members, officials, parents, siblings, coaches and fans – 500 opportunities for people to engage with someone who can represent the grace, love and mercy of Christ.
This is an incredibly unprecedented and exciting opportunity for the local church – your local church – through Sports Chaplaincy Australia, to connect directly with local sporting communities!
