For many years the Major Sports Events Chaplaincy Committee has been involved in advising local organizing committees (LOCs) on how to set up a successful chaplaincy programme at major international sporting events.

The Committee is passionate about providing Christian sports chaplains who;

  • Are able to serve those of all faiths and none
  • Are experts in pastorally serving the people of sport
  • Have no agenda other than to provide spiritual and pastoral care
  • Operate only where there is permission to do so

The MSECC is able to offer LOCs expertise in recommending experienced sports chaplains from around the world.

Our working definition of a Major Sports Event is one which involves more than one region/continent of the world. Thus the MSECC will be involved in selection of chaplains for E.g. Olympics, World Championships, World Cups, Commonwealth Games, Pan American Games.
