Over the years, many chaplains have held Christmas Carol services at their club or gym.

In the past, Sports Chaplaincy UK has partnered with a range of great organisations to resource chaplains host these services.

With the current challenges of the pandemic, this year Sports Chaplaincy UK, in partnership with HOPE Together, are offering Virtual Christmas Carols.

There will be a range of resources available, from Monday 3rd November, to enable chaplains and the wider church to offer a carol service with a sporting theme. There will be readings, prayers, testimonies and a great teaching message from Dr Dave Smith, Senior Pastor at Kingsgate Church in Peterborough.

Alongside this, on YouTube on Tuesday 15th December at 7.30pm and Sunday 20th December at 6.00pm, we will be offering a full version of the Virtual Christmas Carol service.

The Wellbeing Journey

We are so excited to be launching The Wellbeing Journey. We were preparing to work with KingsGate Community Church on a completely different project, when the Covid pandemic changed everyone’s lives so dramatically. KingsGate had developed their own Wellbeing sermon series, which had a significant impact on the church and their guests. A leader in the local city council attended one of their guest services during the series. She later took him aside and asked if he would run the same course in the city!

We felt that The Wellbeing Journey would have a prophetic edge in this season. So we changed our plans and are thrilled that the presenters, Bible teachers and wellbeing experts that we’ve asked to be involved are all available. The scripts are written. The book is at the printer. Filming starts next week, and the series will be ready for churches to launch at Christmas guest services online or in person. Jesus is ‘the Prince of Wholeness’ as The Message version translates Isaiah 9:6, so we will have Christmas sermon ideas to help churches to invite friends, neighbours and colleagues to join the journey. Local churches are in a unique place to lead communities on this journey to physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing as they offer this practical guide. We hope you and your church will join us on this amazing journey.
