Birmingham 2022

Birmingham Churches Together logo

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games (28 July to 8 August) is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase the West Midlands on the global stage.

Sports Chaplaincy are working in partnership with Birmingham Churches Together in preparation for the Commonwealth Games and beyond. We have a heart to train up chaplains in every community sports club around Birmingham and the West Midlands before, during and after the Games.

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 are working 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.

Please click the icons on the right hand side to download the information, which will hopefully help you communicate this to people within your churches and beyond as we look to engage with and prepare people for mission – forming community together!

You are invited to join us on our monthly prayer meeting by Zoom. Please contact Rob Moye for more information, robert.moye@salvationarmy.org.uk.
