The Pulse Games this year was a huge success, consisting of 12 mornings of sport involving 16 schools from across Gloucestershire taking part. The PSALMS team and volunteers from local churches, led the young people in exploring our Pulse Games theme, perseverance, through an opening and closing ceremony which sandwiched a rotation of sport and discovery zones.
Due to it being the Football World Cup this year, the sport of choice was football, with children grabbing hold of the excitement of England’s tournament performance. Several of our Pulse Games have led to further Sports Ministry opportunities across Gloucestershire, including a Non-Residential Sports Camp taking place in Newent this August.
A teacher from one school involved said that it was a “fab sport event with Christian ethos” and another described it as a “fantastic, fun packed morning”, with 100% of teachers keen for the Games to return in the future.
Below is a VLOG from our final Pulse Games of the year, watch Elly and Ben as they explain what it is all about.
