Today, as we reflect on the love of God shown in the Word made flesh, let’s remember those children and young people who know nothing of the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ.

Over the last few years, Scripture Union has been developing, trialling and implementing an effective mission through sports throughout England and Wales. Please pray for Richard Witham, sports mission leader, who works in rural, urban and inner-city contexts with local churches and Christians to help them find ways of sharing faith with children and young people outside of the church.
