London 2012 Olympics & Paralympics

27 March 2012

The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games offer a golden opportunity for churches to engage with their local communities. The Diocese of Guildford is working with More Than Gold the umbrella Christian organisation set up prior to the Atlanta games in 1996 to help churches get involved.

Every community will be touched by the Games and every church can play its part

Get Involved - there really is something every parish, whatever its size, can do to get involved with London 2012. Olympic themed holiday clubs, flower shows, sports quizzes and big screen showings are just some of the events that churches around the country are planning.
