Extra Time is an Educational Programme created by Faith & Football to help underachieving readers in Infant schools. All the reading material is based on Bible stories. Each child on the scheme is allocated a Christian mentor who spends quality one-to-one time with them each week for a whole academic year. As well as raising reading standards & motivation to read at both home & school, the Scheme looks at the Bible to demonstrate to the children how to be a good friend, to stop bullying and to love others.
Faith & Football organises an inner-city Community 6-a-side league. This league offer Faith & Football the opportunity to provide positive role models in an encouraging environment promoting inclusion for all & a healthy & active lifestyle.
Time out is an extension to our Leagues Programme offering quality time for families to spend together enjoying each other's company through craft, competitions and activities.
Faith & Football run three family programmes for 0-4 years olds and their parents/carers. Mucky Pups is all about using messy play to communicate the gospel. Each week we have a different Bible story theme and five messy stations which relate to the story. Rhyme Time is all about music and singing songs about God. Sensory Play is all about the child and their parent or carer exploring their senses through lights, texture and calming music.
Faith & Football are always looking for ways to generate more money to support a greater amount of need in the city and beyond.

Christians in Schools is an opportunity for Christians in full time education to come together for prayer, encouragement and equipping to face the challenges and opportunities that school life brings.
Bring Your Boots is an initiative which encourages people to donate old, unwanted football boots, trainers, kit and equipment which Faith & Football send overseas to Africa supporting our Peace & Unity Tournaments! Bring Your Beans is Faith & Football's response to helping feed those that are hungry. We distribute food to areas of need in the city connecting with other like-minded agencies.
