The San Francisco and London Marathons

3 & 4th October, 2020


The Marathons


This year 3 Covenant Players are participating in the virtual San Francisco Marathon and the virtual London Marathon, now called "The 40th Race".  Other Covenant Players will also complete personal challenges in support of the ministry, cycling, running or walking 5km, 10km or 26.2 miles.

This comes at a time when, like many organizations, CP has been affected by the on-going loss of income due to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.

Will you join with us in supporting TEAM CP?  All donations raised will be used to continue the ministry of Covenant Players in North America, Europe and South Africa.

Donations can be made through this website, directly into the bank listed in each location or by following the appropriate links.

THANK YOU! For your ongoing prayer, support and generosity to the mission and ministry of Covenant Players.

Team CP!
