Faith & Football was started in Portsmouth in 2002 by Micky Mellows a former Professional Footballer. Linvoy Primus and Darren Moore joined Micky, the Charity Director, and decided that as Christians they wanted to serve their local communities by helping young people and their families, be positive role models and help make a real difference!
From that simple beginning Faith & Football has grown so that it now provides a range of community, educational and overseas programmes as a platform for relationship building. We mobilise the Church to meet and serve people where they are on life’s journey and to make Jesus’ message of hope known to all.
A team of 2 full time staff members and over 150 enthusiastic Christian Faith & Football volunteers in Portsmouth, Plymouth and Cambridge faithfully serve their respective communities by delivering our programmes.
All our volunteers complete a training programme and all have been enhanced DBS checked prior to volunteering with us.
