In 2005. a group of Christians from Sudbury, Suffolk, with a passion for football, decided to meet together once a week. The idea was to get to know one another a little better, whilst playing the game we loved.

After that, a few friends joined us. We started to form ourselves into teams. More friends joined us and we started to form  additional teams, based loosely around the churches and Christian organisations to whom we belonged.

It’s called Fellowship Football, because the whole thing is centred around Christian fellowship.

We’re not a church league as such. Rather, as a group of football playing Christians, we see this as just part of the process of living out our Christian lives. Our teams are not made up exclusively of Christians, but the basis on which we meet is intentionally centred around Christ.
