Sports Camp exists to spread the gospel by imparting God’s Word to young people in the context of playing sport.

We Aim:

  • to glorify and honour God in everything we do at Sports Camp (1 Cor 10:31; Rom 15:5-6).
  • to evangelise the unsaved represented at camp (including both campers and referees) (Matt 28:18-20).
  • to challenge and mature the Christian young people in the teams so they can grow in their walk with the Lord and be a witness to the unsaved in their team and in other teams (Eph 4:12-15; 1 Peter 3:15).
  • to come alongside team leaders to encourage and support them in their youth leadership roles (Heb 10:24-25).
  • to provide a safe and sporting environment where, sportsmanship and participation is encouraged.


  • faithfully preaching the gospel using the living and active Word of God.
  • corporately worshiping God through music and songs that glorify Him both in content and delivery.
  • encouraging team leaders in God’s Word and in prayer, in order to promote a unified goal and purpose.
  • providing opportunities for Riverbend Bible Church to interact with campers and share the gospel one-on-one.
  • providing opportunities for Riverbend Bible Church and other helpers to serve during Sports Camp, thereby modelling a selfless servant heart.
  • maintaining a Christlike testimony in all aspects of planning and hosting Sports Camp.
