3rd Global Congress on #Sport and #Christianity 

Date: 18 - 21 August 2022

Venue: Ridley Hall, Cambridge 

Organiser: Global Congress Organising Committee

The Third Global Congress on Sport and Christianity (3GCSC) is a three-day event, hosted by Ridley Hall in Cambridge. This is an ecumenical gathering of sport administrators, coaches, athletes, church leaders, theologians and anyone else who seeks to explore the mutual impact of belief and sport, and also wants to affect a cultural shift in modern sport and the role it plays in a life of faith.

It will explore ‘servant leadership’ and, more specifically, ways in which practitioners and academics can best serve the requirements of the field of sports ministry and chaplaincy theologically, conceptually, practically and spiritually. A central aspiration of the conference is to promote the application of these ideas in line with the historical aims of the Congress, and to consider how an intentional servant leadership approach might facilitate further synergies, connections and partnerships across the sector via the (co)creation of collaborative dialogue.
