On 12th and 13th October Passion for Sport had a stand at the South East Christian Resources Exhibition in Maidstone, Kent. This was a great opportunity for us to speak to potential supporters face to face and to explain our ministry to those who may not have heard of us.
We were able to provide visitors with first-hand feedback from our Destination Rio Project and talk to them about the impact of our programmes on the listeners to our weekly radio shows Planet Sport and Planet Sport Football Africa. We also ran a short, fun quiz for those who came to the stand designed to encourage them to find out more about us.
The exhibition brings together a multitude of different Christian activities providing resources and information to the wider church. As well as the exhibitor stands there are seminars, live music and the ever popular puppet demonstrations.
It is always encouraging to see the wide range of activities represented at these events as Christians use all sorts of ways to engage with people inside and outside the church.
The Christian Resources Exhibitions have been run by the Bible Society for the last 11 years but this is coming to an end and it is hoped that a new owner will take on this role in the near future.
If you were at the event and came to our stand we hope you found it useful and informative. The resources section of this website has a growing amount of downloadable material designed to help you use sport as a ministry tool in your own church or small group environment. Feel free to download these resources or contact us if you think we may be able to help you in any way.
