What is More Than Gold?
For almost 20 years the name 'More Than Gold' has been used by the Christian community as they have engaged with the world's major sporting events. Under this banner they have worked together to serve the Games and their communities.
To serve the London 2012 Games, More Than Gold was established in the UK with the support of all the main denominations and over 60 Christian organisations.
