Running a community festival based around the World Cup, puts churches at the very heart of their community. Many churches have already had the experience of running a Community Festival during the 2012 Olympics or at another time. The World Cup in 2015 offers one more opportunity for churches to work together with their local authorities and with local rugby clubs.
