More Than Gold 2014

Following the success of the More Than Gold campaign that helped the UK churches to engage with the 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic games, organisers are now gearing up for a campaign to guide the Christian response to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. It aims to enable thousands of churches to taste the excitement of reaching their community in fresh and ongoing ways in Jesus' name.

Hospitality

If you live in Glasgow or surrounding area could you open your home to athletes' families or Commonwealth Games volunteers? Find out more about the Homestay programmes link to external website

Service

The games provide an opportunity for churches to serve the local community, for example through community festivals. However, because they may also exacerbate social issues such as homelessness and human trafficking, there is also a need for volunteers for the Social Justice Programme Team.

Mission

Many organisations have joined up with More Than Gold to produce resources, training and opportunities to help people engage in mission during the Games.

More Than Gold 2012
  
 

Largest-ever Church engagement with an Olympics 
Figures showed the contribution made by UK churches to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to be ‘the largest ever.' The scale of Church involvement included over 13,000 hours of voluntary service to travellers. This came from a team of 300 Games Pastors at ten major rail stations, two airports, a coach station and key tourist sites.
