Sunday sport is an increasingly significant issue. Here is a collection of the resources we have produced on the issue. If you would like more information, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘To perform at a high level in my sport I can’t regularly attend church.’ Is this you? Or someone you know? Sunday sport, midweek training and other commitments often pose problems for sportspeople seeking to follow Christ so here’s three reasons why church is so precious for sportspeople.

We are often caught between Sunday services and sporting events as, more and more, sport in our culture clashes with timings of church. How do we get the balance right?
