Why Have a Team?

Guys like football so, for starters, that’s one very good reason a Church should have a football team. Testwood Baptist Church wanted and still wants guys to see that Christians who play football are just normal guys.

Their tackling is just as hard and so is their desire to win but there is a difference. God is real and has made a difference in their lives and they are not ashamed of it.

Having a football team has enabled many guys who do not attend church to get a glimpse of that difference, that the whole God thing is not some irrelevant crutch for the elderly but rather is something not only very real and relevant but life changing.

For some, the football team has been a starting point of spiritual journeys. Nothing is ever pressured.

But there is always the opportunity for people to take things further if they wish.

If you are one of those who wonders what on earth God or the Church could do for you, please read on. Ask when the next Alpha course is on, or follow the link on this site. Take a look at what it means to be a Christian, or read how several guys have found answers to their questions.You know, the sort that you only talk about at funerals or when you’ve had a bit  too much to drink.

Why am I here? What is my purpose? What is life really about? How can you make relationships work? What can I do with my guilt? Is there life after death? Does it matter anyway? Probably all more important than knowing whether you will be picked next week.
