Welcome from Peter

Leading Church Army brings many joys. Amongst those is certainly introducing to you this Impact Report. It is a privilege to tell you of what Church Army has achieved in this last year, in the name of Jesus and inspired by His love. It is a privilege also for me to have this opportunity to thank you deeply and truly for your part in this. Church Army lives by the love of God in Jesus, and it is supported by the prayers and financial generosity of many people just like you, as well as the vision and commitment of a range of funding bodies.

Seldom has this partnership of people, trusts and committed staff been of such significance and impact as in the past year. Around the world nations and communities have struggled with the impact of the pandemic. Across these islands where we serve we have seen isolation, material poverty, and spiritual and emotional need growing as inequality has grown.

Early in these events Church Army took the bold decision not to furlough any of our frontline staff engaged in our mission in key projects or local communities. Our work is “on the ground” at the sharp end of the challenges, and we realised that this would be more important than ever. We have held to that commitment, and the work and reach of Church Army has not just held firm but has grown and flourished. Yet, you enabled this to happen. The decision to hang in there and to grow our work with those most in need was a bold one, but you enabled us to do it. I pray you will find joy and peace as you read how God has used your generosity, and I hope you will hear also the depth of our thanks to you.

God Bless

Peter Rouch
