WSM Bath was launched as a CST in 2008, however various sports ministry events have occurred and leaders trained prior to this date. WSM Bath members helped start the popular and effective community coaching ministry which has grown in partnership with WSM Bristol as they reach into approx 40 schools and the greater community through mission based ‘Total Coaching’.

GET Sported: Easter half term
We enjoyed 2 fantastic Camps with 128 children – really warm, relaxed and nurturing (warm in spirit I mean, not in temperature, quite the opposite!). The special atmosphere was noticed by parents, staff and children, God’s presence was really tangible. We explored 3 character qualities needed to be a ‘Sporting Star’; generosity, compassion and righteousness.
“The Camp was amazing, the only place my children have ever said they can’t wait to go back to” Parent
“GET Sported is what an amazing school would be like if there were no lessons and everyone was really, really kind all the time!” Tabitha
“I loved the wonder of praying along with the children and hearing the feather of whispers around the group as they were taking Jesus into their hearts” Leader
20 Re(Commitments), 30 bible giveaways, 9 sports plus performing arts and chill-out-craft

Young Leader Mentoring
Yahoooo – what a fab day with our Young Leaders!! We had an ace time, and in the sun too! The Young Leaders were designing and leading coaching sessions based on foundational skills of their chosen sport, reflecting on the foundations of their character, learning more about the foundations of faith and demonstrating the roots of mission. We ended with competitive matches in basketball and cricket – one win a piece!! Thank you Young Leaders for a fantastic day together
Please pray for:
- Development of team with new members from different churches.
- Financial provision to fund staff, office and new projects.
- Establishment of church partnership based discipleship activities for children in Bath and Frome.
