Sports Chaplaincy serving at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022

Sports Chaplaincy had the opportunity of serving at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games 22 where we were able to support athletes and teams across the 3 major athlete villages as part of the Faith and Wellbeing Hubs. This was done at the request of the organising committee and was an immense privilege. It was a joy to work and support not just the athletes but work with the wonderful volunteers and workforce ensuring the games were such a success.

We were asked by and partnered up with Birmingham Churches Together in preparation for the Commonwealth Games and beyond. We had a heart to train up chaplains in every community sports club around Birmingham and the West Midlands before, during and after the Games.

Another aspect of the preparation for these games was Mission. Mission and the Commonwealth Games 2022.
In Romans 12:5 we read ‘So we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another’.
A planning team of representatives from The Salvation Army, The Church of England, Sports Chaplaincy UK and Scripture Union worked together to create a contextualised KITBAG of resources to prepare, train, educate and empower the local grassroots church for a life of sports mission pre, during and post Commonwealth Games 2022.
