Y 50 Football and Faith: A Game of Two Halves (2018)


Reaching, engaging and discipling children and young people can be a challenge for churches. What if football could be part of the answer?

This booklet suggests that the beautiful game can be a ready-made bridge between those of all faiths and none, and a place where young people can experience the transformational love of God. Football can also be a grassroots way for churches and youth workers to reach out effectively to the communities they serve.
