Archbishop of York: Sport offers a way to open 'doors of opportunity'

by Eno Adeogun

Guests were treated to a number of workshop sessions led by Graham Daniels - the director of Christians in Sport and and a director at Cambridge United and Keith Proctor, managing director of Christians in Sport, amongst others.

Dr John Sentamu said: "I think that sport offers the most wonderful way of opening doors of opportunity.


"Through sport we discover more of all that God created us to be - whether as coaches, as players or as supporters - and that transformations are possible.

"With God on your side, everything is possible!"

Rt Rev Tony Porter, the Archbishops' sports ambassador, said: "The Ministry of Sport helps the local church to share the Good News of Jesus in an accessible way to those in our teams.

"The sports field is ripe for harvest!"

The Ministry of Sport is a Church of England initiative but churches of all denominations are welcomed to assist individuals and local churches to build on sport-related opportunities.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
