Sport & Wellbeing events

A series of motivating events to support ministry through sport and wellbeing activities.

SMUK Gathering - 30th Nov & 1st Dec

Bookings are now open for this event. As always, the time together will be centred around:

  • Sharpening each other in the Gospel
  • Sharing best practice
  • Supporting each other in friendship and prayer

There will be a focus around being still, and in doing so, providing space for reflection, response and retreat. Major Andrew Vertigan (Salvation Army Pioneer and FX Leader) and The Revd. Natalie Andrews (CofE Sport and Wellbeing project lead), will be facilitating and leading.

It will remain a distinctively SMUK Gathering, with opportunities to play sports together, walk and talk, go to the pub, share food and encourage one another.
Below are all the practical details and it would be great if you could book early as this helps us to plan accordingly.

Venue: Frontier Centre, Addington Road, Irthlingborough, Wellingborough, NN9 5UH
