We know just how much time and effort goes into ministry with children and young people, particularly when it comes to reaching out to those who don't go to church. Budgets are tight and time pressures heavy.

That's why we're working hard to make sure you have access to an ever-growing range of high-quality free resources. The latest of those is our World Cup pack, Jumpers for Goalposts (download now).

Helping you reach out during the upcoming World Cup and beyond

Building on the success of our Light Party and Christmas Party packs, Jumpers for Goalposts gives you everything you need to easily and effectively engage with young people during the World Cup.

Over the last few years, working with local churches, Scripture Union has been growing effective mission through sports, sharing Jesus with children and young people far outside of the church. We've seen some awesome results in rural, urban and inner-city contexts.

We've taken all of this learning and squeezed it into one handy free pack.

The Jumpers for Goalposts pack is literally bursting at the seams with...

  • Tips on how to plan and who to invite
  • Ideas and resources for use in church, schools and community settings
  • Flexibility depending on how ‘sporty’ you are, 
  • Top tips on how to bring faith into the conversation
  • Tips on keeping 'un-sporty' children engaged
  • Ideas for follow-up activities

And, as well as the ideas in the pack itself, we've got lots of extra bonus resources for you, too...
