Notts churches add key post in run up to London 2012
An intern to work with churches across Nottingham has been appointed by the Church of England. The aim is to seize the opportunity of the 2012 Games.
Rachel King, a 21 year old rugby player, takes up the post in September. She’ll work with the Sport Ambassador for the Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham, Tim Friend, helping churches organise events and link with their local schools and communities in the context of the Games
Rachel says, “I am passionate about combining sport and evangelism. And excited about the opportunities we have in Britain, over the next year and afterwards, to use sport and sports-related events to point people towards God.”
Rachel, a BSc graduate, captained her university rugby team where she led the student Christians in Sport group. She also plays for Chesterfield Ladies.
Says Tim Friend, ‘Rachel has a particular interest to help communities a bridge between the world of church and the world of sport. As a Christian who is well established in the ‘clubhouse’, her enthusiasm and experience will be a great, resource to the ministry of sport.’
The internship has been set up by the charity Time for God through its Time For 2012 initiative. Their forty years experience of providing volunteers is now being used to support churches as they respond to the Games.
