2. Screening football matches: Many churches in the past have screened World Cup matches and other big footballing fixtures. A little disclaimer before I continue, please make sure you look into what licences you need to show the match. If you are in a position to host a football match then you have a great tool in connecting with the local community.
One of the churches I used to attend showed the England World Cup matches and invited the whole community. In an area which was known for violence in the city centres after England defeats many people commented how this was a great alternative. The community came together and many relationships formed off the back of these matches.
