Welcome to Sports Chaplaincy UK

There are hundreds of chaplains in the UK and Ireland, providing spiritual and pastoral care to professional and amateur sport. Sports Chaplaincy UK is increasingly involved in helping sporting organisations support, train and appoint sports chaplains.

Chaplains can be of help to all sorts of people involved with sport, when crisis, need or difficulty comes. I commend the idea of sports chaplaincy and the work of Sports Chaplaincy UK to you.

Every athlete needs some kind of support and encouragement and a chaplain can be a valuable source of this support.
