Sport and Faith Leader

Fluff it. Duff it. Score it. Smash it. Whatever you do, just give it a go. That’s our motto for sport and for life. We’re for jumping right in and going on new adventures together, as a team.

We believe that being more active, like the Christian faith, can change people’s lives forever. And so we’re here to get everyone moving and show them that things are a lot more fun when we’re kicking, diving, riding, rolling, running and jumping around together.

Will you join us?

SPORT, PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, FAITH, ADVENTURE, CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE, WELLBEING, FULLNESS OF LIFE, LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT, NEW WORSHIPPING COMMUNITIES, FUN.

We are looking for a Sport and Faith Leader who will develop and deliver an expression of the Sportily vision in our Beacon, Gloucestershire location, and programmes of activity that enable female participation and leadership in sport and physical activity across our network.

Building on the work of the previous Leader in Beacon, you’ll run an exciting range of community and school-based sport and physical activity provision and work to establish new worshipping communities for young people here.

In addition to this, you’ll work alongside our team of Coaches and Leaders, helping us respond to research by the Youth Sports Trust by delivering work that embeds key principles for increasing female participation in both our sport and physical activity, and leadership development programmes across the network.

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about sports ministry and up for the challenge of exploring what relevant worshipping communities, with sport at their heart, can look like for children, young people and their families. Someone who isn’t afraid to try new things, to think differently and help us to do that too as we undertake this journey together
