Sports Ministry Case Study 2

In 2006 an Easter Soccer School was held at Hayes Lane Baptist Church. The Church was delighted with a turnout of 24 children for a week of Fun, Football & Faith. On the back of this, the Church with the help of Ambassadors for two days a week started delivering a community programme e.g. in local schools. The following year 64 children attended the 2007. This was achieved by working with a church of a membership of only around 70 people. Currently from this church, there is a football outreach work in 3 schools in the area with around 300 children per week taking part plus a Tuesday night church youth club with football and bible teaching for 33 youngsters who regularly attend.
