London Churches Football Tournament


“The tournament really helped raise the profile of our church in the area and provided a chance for non-Christians in our team to hear a very relevant Gospel message” 

My kids loved the talk at the end. They all wanted to grab a Bible and gospel booklet.

“Great day for all of the Church, we had over 30 of us watching our team in the final. Several of my team mentioned that the talk had a positive impact and they had reached out to a few friends as a result.”

This is the 19th annual London Churches Football Tournament. We will once again be running the adult and the children tournaments on different days. Last year we saw a big increase in children’s teams entering and having separate days helped us to really focus on both tournaments. We want to encourage all the adult teams who come to look at entering a children’s team.

The aims of the tournament are to provide an opportunity for people to hear the Gospel, encourage fellowship and provide a quality tournament to support your church outreach.

For walking and women’s football, we are introducing individual entries. You can enter on your own or as a smaller number of players. On the day you will be put in a team. If there are 2-3 from the same church, we will put you together, please make sure you use the same church name as you enter.
