Shareit! 45 - Spring/Summer 2017
This year sees us celebrating 135 years since Church Army was founded, 75 years since the death of our founder, Wilson Carlile, and five years of being a Mission Community.
Throughout our history, we have continually adapted to the shifting needs of society, yet we remain grounded in Wilson Carlile’s original vision of enabling Christians to share their faith and bring men, women and children to a living faith in Jesus Christ.
We hope you will enjoy this special anniversary edition of Shareit! which connects our past and present with the common thread of helping the most broken and vulnerable. On page 4, you can read about our charismatic first leader, Wilson, and what led him to set up Church Army. You can also discover a brief history of our work with the homeless on page 8.
We then fast forward to the present, where you can find out how our Marylebone Project in London is helping women who are experiencing homelessness get back on their feet through its Women into Work programme (page 12) and sewing classes (page 16). On page 14, you can read Fatima’s very personal account of how the project has empowered her to turn her life around.
Shareit! magazine goes out to individual supporters and churches. It is full of real life stories of the work of Church Army and our partners. Shareit! can be reproduced in whole or part in your parish or diocese magazine or website. For more information contact Communications on 0300 123 2113 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
