Faith and Football

faith-and-football-largeAn exciting partnership is being forged with Doncaster Rovers to bring Faith And Football to Doncaster.

Based at the Keepmoat Stadium, we will be running a six week football league three times a year for teams of six children drawn from all over the town and linking in particular with schools in Wheatley, Bentley and Hexthorpe. The target age group is School Years 4 to 7.

To run the weekly sessions and to hold the closing trophy presentation ( which will include a gospel talk and a testimony from a professional footballer) we need to recruit a team of people to a number of key roles :-

  • Team managers and assistant team managers
  • Referees
  • Catering team
  • Befriending team
  • Prayer supporters
  • Celebration stewards

We also need an Administrator who will set up the database, record the weekly scores and manage the volunteer rotas.

All volunteers will receive full training from Faith And Football.

The nearest project locally is at Barnsley AFC with the HQ at Portsmouth AFC. Have a look at the national website for further details www.faithandfootball.org.uk

Please pass this advert to people in your church and around your network of contacts and ask interested parties to send me an email as soon as possible to register their interest in one of the volunteer roles on ianr7@hotmail.co.uk .

This is a great opportunity to reach Dads in particular and to engage primary children with matters of faith whilst encouraging them into active participation in sport.
