We are involved in chaplaincy in the world of sport, from grassroots local level through to international elite events.
We are present in a local gym serving as chaplains, acknowledging that people go to gyms for more reasons than fitness. They go also because they are lonely, stressed, suffering from low self esteem, body image issues and so on. Through chaplaincy we provide a listening ear, some social gatherings and spiritual guidance. We also run courses at the gym such as a course for women looking at issues of identity and self esteem. We also train other gym chaplains around the UK.
Working alongside Sports Chaplaincy UK, we are involved in having a presence at major events supporting athletes and staff at some of the most high pressured points in their careers. We have served on the chaplaincy teams at Winter Paralympics 2010, London 2012 Olympics, 2014 Commonwealth Games, 2017 World Athletics and Para Athletics Championships, amongst others.
