The month of September brings with it many changes; the seasons transition from Summer into Autumn and for children it’s time to head back to school. For the Church Army community it’s an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate the incredible work of our evangelists and staff, to commemorate our founder Wilson Carlile’s death, and remind ourselves of his vision that Church Army exists to reach out to the most marginalised in society with the love of Jesus.
The idea is pretty simple. For just one Sunday in September, we want your church to promote our life changing work and spend some time hearing about how our evangelists are reaching those on the very edge of society.
You can book a Church Army speaker for the occasion who will be able to share inspiring stories with you. We also have films and resources available to order to help the day go well and to bring a focus to your prayer and giving. Why not even create a Church Army display in your church?
Church Army speakers have been visiting churches and community groups up and down to spread the word of our work. Evangelist-in-training Hannah Seal had a great time with the Mother’s Union in Baglan, Port Talbot. Here’s what they had to say about their experience:
“I just wanted to write to tell you how much we all enjoyed Hannah's talk last night. She is a lovely girl, and we are all better informed about the work of the Church Army as a result of her very interesting, and also humorous presentation. Thank you for sending her to us, and we hope to see her in the future…She will be most welcome.
