Play, stay, study and pray (plus of course food glorious food)

22 October 2019

Ben Powell has devised a brilliant plan to incorporate sport, bible study, prayer and food. However, for this to work Ben needs your help. Here’s Ben’s suggestions together with his contact details.

We are looking to build a group within the Church who might be interested in the following:


– meeting to play some sport

– going back to someone’s home for food and conversation

– some time in prayer and focused study of the bible 

Ethos and accessibility:

– anyone is welcome to be part of the group

– there is a commitment to play, eat after and study 

– if you are part of the group you feel OK to host at some point


– a core team need to coordinate activity, hire a sport venue and ensure someone can host for food and study

– meet once every 6 weeks

– different types of sport (e.g. football, badminton, bowls, table tennis, snooker, squash etc- rotational)

– roughly 3-4 hours of your time

– the group co-fund the sport venue

Could you email Ben Powell ( if you are: 

1) interested in being part of this group

2) you would like to be a core team member who will help coordinate 

3) outline any sports/activities that you particularly enjoy

Ben will then arrange an initial core meeting to set up the first number of dates/venues/homes and then communicate this to the wider group.
