THE WINNING COMBINATION – SportsReach 2013 Report

We were pleased to welcome the SportsReach Team led by John Gorst when again it was great to welcome 50 children and parents to our Soccer Day, even though heavy rain fell in the morning.


We are indebted to Kirkby Stephen Football Club for the use of the field and Club House where we were able to spend time in the morning sharing Bible Stories and having fun with the young people, then later meeting together in the Hall at Mellbecks when some of the team shared their experience of living the Christian life and the input Jesus had on their lives.

As the rain stopped in the afternoon, the children enjoyed the time training and playing football. It was encouraging to see many friends and parents arrive to watch the children play and receive prizes and trophies. Our thanks to Ron Marston and friends for finishing the day with a great Barbecue.

A sunny Sunday morning was commenced with a Treasure Hunt followed by a crowded Hall for the Family Service led by John Gorst of the SportsReach team.

The weekend of Fun, Football, Faith and Food, proved to be a ‘Winning Combination’ as a number of people expressed appreciation of the weekend.
