Shareit! 44 - Winter 2016/2017

Front cover of Shareit 44

When our founder Wilson Carlile established Church Army in 1882, his vision was to reach out to people living in the darkness of poverty, homelessness, addiction and fear. Well over a century later, our prayer continues to be that we can help spread the light of Jesus Christ throughout these islands.

In this edition, you can read about the work of our Thanet Centre of Mission, which assists older people to find faith in later life through Prayer Care (pages 12-13). You can also read about three individual journeys of healing and self-discovery in Tales from Thanet (pages 8-11).

Turn to page 18 to read all about Sorted, a church 'for young people run by young people' in West Yorkshire, which was set up by our Bradford Centre of Mission.

Our Research Unit has recently published their magnum opus, a report of their findings into fresh expressions of Church (fxC), which has seen them survey over 1,000 examples of fxC across the country. On pages 24-26, you can read a Q&A with our Director of Research, George Lings, and discover some of the fascinating facts that have emerged from this research.

We hope that you will enjoy reading this issue of Shareit!, and as you read it we hope you’ll feel incredibly proud of all the incredible things you’re helping Church Army to achieve. Our work wouldn’t be possible without the support of wonderful people like you – thank you!
