We’ve been partnering with local churches like yours since the beginning

Empowering athletic life and next-level investment starts in the powerhouse of ministry – the local church.

Your church can transform your local community by connecting with sports clubs and sports centres. When a church becomes an SCA Partner Church, we work together with them to place sports chaplains where they’re most needed. Sports chaplaincy is a powerful way to work out the church’s mission to show others God’s life-changing love.

SCA Partner Church Tour

Scots Church Collins Street is the church the Queen attends when she visits Melbourne! More interestingly, Scots runs an annual city-wide BBQ and Footy Celebration service on the Wednesday prior to the AFL Grand Final. All monies raised supports the work of SCA. Scots is passionate about community and has been a great advocate and prayer partner with SCA over many years. See www.scotschurch.com.

CBC Caringbah Baptist Church has been a long-time supporter of SCA, having sponsored SCA to grow the vision and facilities to run SCA Level 1 and Level 2 Training. They have been wonderful hosts and have seen lives impacted in their community through the deliberate growth of chaplains in the Shire area.

Warrandyte Community Church has recently become an SCA Partner Church. Through their four recently appointed club chaplains, they’re showing an authentic commitment to their local community and it’s having a great impact on people in the church and community alike.

What do Partner Churches do?

  • The local church finds a champion – someone who loves sport, is committed in their faith, and is passionate about the people of their community.
  • SCA works with the champion to run a free Level 1 Training (Introduction to Sports Chaplaincy) for the church.
  • The champion gets together 2–4 people from the church to start a conversation about placing a chaplain in a local club.
  • The church and SCA then work together to “hit a 6” – put 6 chaplains into local sports communities.
  • The church prays and supports the vision – a chaplain serving in every club in Australia!
