The Salvation Army is excited about sport and doing sport for
Each week members of our churches and centres are
participating in some form of activity all across the UK. There are
so many good things about sport from the physical to the social
benefits and through sport The Salvation Army is serving those in
difficult life situations by simply having fun or making welcome
those who normally cannot join in. In many of our Lifehouses,
helping homeless people get their lives back, across the country,
sport is enabling residents to learn life skills and regain
confidence in building relationships.
Many of our churches (corps) have registered sports teams
and Stowmarket SAFC is an officially accredited club with the FA.
Others also have sports coaching for children and young people once
a week and throughout the year, in partnership with the Children's
Ministry Unit, some corps host the In-Touch Sports week.
Sports has also been an avenue for us to raise awareness
of social justice issues related to our work transforming lives in
all our communities.
The Salvation Army Sport for Good promotes the use of its
branded fairly traded footballs and rugby balls.

fairly traded football or rugby ball email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
