Usain Bolt24–28 August 2016

In light of the dramatic increase in academic research activity and practical initiatives on the topic of sports and Christianity over the last decade, the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at York St John University, in collaboration with the Bible Society, will host this event.

“What an intriguing idea to finally put athletics and Christianity into conversation. This promises to be a fascinating event.”

Theologian, Stanley Hauerwas 


 “This Conference is an excellent way to bring together the various practitioners and disciplines of sport and Christianity.  The emphasis on the integrity of its enquiry should ensure that the Conference’s conclusions are taken seriously.”
