Sports Parables is a new resource offered by our Sports Development team, applying Christian faith and life-skills to sporting life.

We believe that God is everywhere and active in sport. Everyday sporting scenarios provide opportunity to experience, express & explore God’s Love, Grace and Good News in new ways. Jesus used parables (stories with hidden meaning) to connect with people , using relevant situations, through which to share Grace & Truth. Sports Parables aim to do the same; to take a sports scenario and highlight an important Christian value, learnable in that moment.
