Sports Factory

Published on: 6 September 2021

This is a team of qualified coaches who love sport and love Jesus.

When I first contacted Tim Henery he was about to lead a sporting session in school, so the conversation was brief; however, it was encouraging to know that despite weekly events cancelled through Covid restrictions, school connections continued, indeed they prospered.

He asks us to pray for one very big area – the launch in of the Sports Factory Active RE programme which teaches about Christianity in schools. They will tell stories from the Bible and explain Christian beliefs in a fun and active way. From September it will be delivered in a number of schools across the diocese. Pray that it would be well received by schools and children and that the team would share the gospel with thousands of young people.
