NCT - Mulberry House
Sport is more than an activity, it’s a community of people consisting of more than 25 million men, women and children in the UK - what a mission field! Sports Chaplaincy UK is a Christian charity which has a dream to see an expression of God’s love and compassion in every community called sport. The charity has seen an explosion in both the need for, and people becoming Sports Chaplains. There are hundreds of chaplains in the UK and Ireland, providing spiritual and pastoral care to professional and amateur sport. Sports Chaplaincy UK helps support, train and facilitate the appointment of Sports Chaplains. The charity finds fresh ways of modelling and demonstrating the radical love of Jesus in the life of the wider community. This ministry is, at its heart, all about service - “Serving sport through excellence in Chaplaincy”. Turning rhetoric into reality, what you see will impact you, but how you see, will compel you to respond differently.
“Chaplains can be of help to all sorts of people involved with sport, when crisis, need or difficulty comes”. Sir Alex Ferguson CBE, Former Manager of Manchester United.
