A new initiative is encouraging Christian rugby fans to reach their fellow supporters with the gospel ...

With the World Cup only just out of view and the Six Nations soon to be on our screens once more and the Super League kicking off too, CVM have followed up their 2015 football fans' initiative with a new project looking to combine faith in Jesus and being a rugby supporter.
 
Rawfaith is an initiative backed by CVM that is all about encouraging opportunities for Christian sports supporters to share with their ‘not-yet believing’ fellow fans, not only the highs and lows of the season, but also faith in Jesus.
 
The football scheme has been underway for a while and now by linking together Christian rugby supporters from all over the UK, CVM aims to have a Kingdom presence at the heart of every club’s fan base.

It’s a perfect resource for Christian rugby fans of any form, whether hardened season ticket holders or an armchair supporters of the internationals; Rawfaith will offer support to those lovers of the Game in their faith journey while enabling them to impact the lives of other fans by sharing Jesus through a rugby context.
 
All believers who are fans of rugby will be invited to join their team’s Christian supporters group.

Upon joining they will:

  • Be linked in with the Coordinator and other Christian fans of their team receive our rugby and faith articles that combine rugby hot topics with faith in Jesus
  • Receive Rawfaith e‐communications keeping them informed of any events/news regarding their favorite club/national team

These Rawfaith groups are intended to act as an outreach mechanism for rugby fans; helping individuals to share the good news of Jesus Christ with their friends. Linking up with Rawfaith and being part of a team's group, will also enhance both the match day and all round supporter experience.
 
CVM is recruiting Club Co‐ordinators for each club who will act as a point of contact between Rawfaith and their club’s Christian fans, responsible for organising outreach events; socials; club specific prayer and general team related discussion in their respective Facebook groups.
