Scripture Union is delighted to be a partner organisation with SCUK (Sports Chaplaincy UK) seeking to support Sports Chaplaincy UK in developing sports chaplaincy in the UK with a commitment to sharing volunteer chaplaincy opportunities through our networks as well as seeking to resource, where requested, the local church in engaging with the wider community of sport
"I would encourage all players the importance of talking and getting off things of your chest. Chaplains need to remind the players that the support is there and they can talk to you about anything - talking is so important"
Robbie Hunter Paul
CEO Bradford Bulls
"As a former player, coach and now manager I cannot recommend highly enough the vital role played by chaplains within football clubs"
former manager of Huddersfield Town FC and Charlton Athletic
"Chaplaincy brings a personal touch- people feel they can be listened to as individuals. If chaplaincy was established in every club, I believe it would be of huge benefit to the game as a whole"
Sir Ian McGeechan, OBE
Former Head Coach
British and Irish Lions
"Chaplains can be of help to all sorts of people involved with sport, when crisis, need or difficulty comes. I commend the idea of sports chaplaincy and the work of Sports Chaplaincy UK to you."
Sir Alex Ferguson, CBE
Director and Ambassador
