Seventeen representatives from local churches attended including representatives from churches in Frankston and City on a Hill in Melbourne.
Trainer Steve Stubbings said, “It was a great night seeing the enthusiasm from local churches wanting to connect with their local community.”
“The venue and staff at Sandringham Yacht Club were outstanding.” adding, “Thanks needs to be given to Steve Enticott from All Souls Anglican Church in Sandringham, a member of the club.”
Of the seventeen trainee chaplains the sports of interest include, tennis, AFL, soccer, basketball, netball, table tennis, boxing, touch footy, lawn bowls, golf and cricket.
A SCA Certificate 2 in Sports Chaplaincy is being run at All Souls Sandringham in March 2017.
Steve Stubbings reflected that, “A CBT [Centre Bounce Team] will likely emerge from the training helping identify and appoint chaplains to local sports clubs in the Bayside area.”
