The Long Version of what we do....
Free & Fit NYC & London 2020
Free and Fit was originally launched as a small group of friends who loved Sport and loved Jesus. Out of Holy Trinity Brompton in South Kensington, United Kingdom, in May 2013, under the stewardship of Tim Matthews, Love Church Founder, and Colby Hanks, Slice Studios Co-Founder, Tim Chew launched Faith and Fitness with a dream of working out and worshipping together was born. The Vision of Faith and Fitness was to welcome brothers and sisters of Christ into discipleship to share God's word and to shape God's people to be more like Jesus Christ. So often people in sport seek guidance on how to balance, work, life and training in sport. The ethos of this group is to provide discipleship for people who participate in sports, from levels of all abilities, to be able to speak freely about their faith and fitness in a fellowship group.
The group met fortnightly to read a small passage from the bible, to listen to a talk, participate in sport and discuss the issues raised from the talk. The main emphasis will be instead of eating dinner, like in a normal small group, we will take part in a sporting activity. Through the idea of combining Faith, Christian Scripture teachings and prayer, and fitness, running, racquet sports and soccer, a new community was built. Now today, we are based in four different locations including West London, Shepherds Bush, South London, Kennington Park, in the UK and Chelsea New York City, the Highline Hotel, and Hoboken at the Hoboken Evangelical Free Church in the United States.
Free & Fit’s mission today is slightly different to the original Faith & Fitness model. Free & Fit seeks to build community, reduce loneliness and share the love of Jesus through Sports, the Arts, Outreach and Service. The three different engagement, building community, reducing loneliness and sharing the love of Jesus are to engage with different target audiences. Firstly, those who are new to the City they live in, mainly London and New York, where making friends, building a family or network can be difficult and challenging. Secondly, for those who need authentic friendships, the lonely, those who are stressed, depressed, anxious or fearful and need somewhere to make home. Finally, then to those who wish to seek and experience a faith community and want to know more about Jesus they don’t have to believe, just to know they have somewhere they can belong.
Our core differentiation to other communities is the four spheres we operate in with youth, young adults and all age groups through Sports, the Arts, Outreach and Service. Past projects have included food collections, mission trips, workouts, worship sessions, weekends away, spiritual and sports coaching, developing a Free and Fit tailored individual or group program and one to one pastoral care if required.
We would love for you to consider taking part in our 12 part Free and Fit Challenge which can be tailored for your specific needs whether that be that you are School, Church, Business or Individual, Youth, Young Adult or any age group. Please review our different service offerings, specialist programs and tailored tracks to suit you and your community’s needs. We are here for you and praying for you! Love & Blessings Tim & F&F Team
