Supporters may have noticed the advertising banner in front of the Railway Stand, stating simply “Christ Our Saviour”. This was erected by an organisation called Gospel Goal. The group has erected banners or pitch side boards at several Irish League stadia, including those of Ards/Bangor, Ballinamallard United, Ballymena United, Carrick Rangers, Cliftonville, Coleraine, Crusaders, Glenavon, Linfield, Newry City and Portadown. They are also prominent on the scoreboard at Ibrox Stadium.
Gospel Goal was formed after a meeting in Banbridge in late September 2015. At that meeting, a challenge was issued to bring the Gospel message to the workplaces, sporting venues and communities of those present.
'Gospel Goal' has one real aim and objective - to spread the teachings of the Gospel to football grounds and pitches right across Northern Ireland.
The group have organised a football breakfast at the Oval at 10.am Saturday 23rd November 2019
Pete Snodden (Cool FM), will host a panel interview with guts including triple title winning Glentoran Legend, Michael Halliday, Glentoran Club Chaplain Rev. David Thompson and others to be confirmed nearer the time.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the welcome and discussion.
Admission is free, but voluntary donations will be welcome to cover costs and to support the work of local ministries.
The event is organised in association with Sports Chaplaincy (https://sportschaplaincy.org.uk ).
