“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.”


Chris Andrew is the founding director of Project Touchline which was incorporated as a private limited company on 25th June 2018. Chris has worked in primary education for over twenty years and is a qualified UKCC Level 2 Rugby Union and Cricket coach. Between 2005 – 2011 he worked at the award winning Bath Rugby Education Centre which was part of the high profile HM Government’s Playing for Success programme. In 2011, he founded Roaring Rugby Ltd which was a very successful rugby union coaching company working at its height with over five hundred parents during after-school and for holiday camps, thirty primary schools, employing twelve staff and a turnover of just under £100,000. In 2016, Chris was admitted and licensed as a Reader/Licensed Lay Minister in the Diocese of Gloucester and Church of England. In 2019, Chris was commissioned as an Archbishops’ Evangelist at Lambeth Palace in London by the Bishop of Leicester, Chair of the Archbishops’ College of Evangelists.

It was the combination of a successful career coaching PE/sport to primary school children and the call to be a minister and evangelist in God’s church which culminated in Project Touchline being born.
