Ignite Sport

Sports Chaplaincy NZ provide Chaplaincy services for athletes and sports clubs in New Zealand. Ignite Sport is a partner with Sports Chaplaincy NZ in the Wellington Region. We see Sports Chaplaincy as a natural extension of our work.

A Sports Chaplain is:

A VOLUNTEER who is an invited and trusted guest in the sports setting, who is available for conversations with team members, which may be personal and therefore confidential.

A PASTORAL MENTOR who considers the total person: mental, physical, spiritual and social, rather than simply maximizing the on field performance of the sports person.

A TEAM-PLAYER who works in relationship with the sport’s supporting community (doctors, physiotherapists, managers, sport psychologists, officials, coaching staff etc).
