Engage 2015 – Rugby and mission
The game of rugby has an amazing history, as the video above shows. The Rugby World Cup comes to the UK during September/October 2015. There are 20 national squads taking part in 48 games and using 50 training centres around the country. We are expecting 400,000 visitors from over 100 nations and massive media coverage for this, the third largest international sporting event.
Engage2015 aims to help churches to make the most of this great opportunity to make God’s love visible. Visit the Engage2015 website
to find out what your church can do to serve your community and engage with your local area.
There’s a Home Stay programme for players’ family members. Could your church offer hospitality? You can stage a community festival, screen live games, run a rugby-themed sports quiz, make links with schools, and much more.
