Submit an Expression of Interest
Thank you for your interest in becoming a sports chaplain. Opportunities for chaplaincy vary across the UK and in some areas are very limited both in elite/professional sport and at grass roots level.
However, if you would like to enquire about the possibilities in your area please send an email to and include your location, church community you are part of and sport in which you are hoping to serve. We will then send your interest on to the appropriate National Director who will then be in touch.
Thanks for your patience and interest.
