Making a difference in the sporting community

While Sports Chaplains are increasingly becoming a standard part of club life, you might be asking “Why do we need a chaplain?” or “Where does a chaplain fit in a sports club?”

Apart from primarily providing ‘Pastoral Care’, our chaplains also provide:

  • Someone to help you build a healthy and strong sports community.
  • Investment in caring for the whole person – on and off the field. 
  • Tools to equip your club to deal with the life and wellbeing needs of players, staff members and wider sporting community through sports chaplaincy.
