Celebration of Sport

9 November 2012


Sheffield Wednesday fans are invited to attend a Celebration of Sport service hosted by club chaplain Reverend Peter Allen.

The event will be held at Sheffield Cathedral on Monday 12 November from 7.30pm and will include a talk from Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones about the Feelgood Factor of Sport.

A number of clubs and organisations will be represented including Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United, Sheffield Sharks and Sheffield Steelers along with the Sheffield and Hallamshire County Football Association.

He said: “In my role as Chaplain for Sport in the Diocese of Sheffield I have come to recognise the part sport plays across the region. In this special Olympic and Paralympic year I believe this has become even more clear to many of as we were drawn into the drama of the Games.”

“In hosting a service celebrating sport this offers us all an opportunity to give expression to our thankfulness for sport and those who contribute towards it in whatever capacity and at whatever level.”

The service is open to the general public but due to limited spaces anyone wanting to attend should contact Rev Peter Allen on 07772926278 or by email: pete.allen@sheffieldsportschaplaincy.co.uk
