Christian Skaters is a Christian non-profit, grass roots organisation and relies on the financial support of churches, foundations and individuals. As individuals we have been reaching out to the skateboarding community since the 1990s.
Inspired by the movement of Christian Surfers, Christian Skaters was officially born in 2003. Christian Skaters felt a call to link arms with skate ministries from a number of countries to form an international movement.
Christian Skaters UK exists to connect local skate communities to Jesus. Alongside Christian Skaters International, we are a global family of skateboarders who are dedicated to living out our faith, sharing the hope we have in Jesus Christ and supporting skaters in God’s Word.
Christian Skaters exists to equip and encourage those with a heart to share Jesus Christ with the skateboarding culture.
What We Do
