Ladywood Youth for Christ Sports
Ladywood Youth for Christ sports sessions run for an hour each week for ages 8-14. Sessions involve: a ‘prayer before play’, then our recreational football session, with a short, punchy Christian message related to a sports theme at half-time. The project is extremely popular with approximately 24 young people coming along each week.
Ladywood Youth for Christ Sports hope to bring and encourage true Christian values such as respect, tolerance, sportsmanship and teamwork throughout.
