As The Salvation Army celebrates its 149th birthday today - it is encouraging more of us to take up a sport.
With the Wimbledon final this weekend, the start of the Tour de France and the British Grand Prix - the Christian charity believes it's never been a better time to don a pair of football boots. To mark the milestone it's also revealed a football project which has helped those affected by addiction and homelessness.
Captain Nick Coke who is a Salvation Army minister tells Premier the beauty of sport:
A Monthly Gift Of £5 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 UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of £5 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.
