Welcome to the latest edition of our supporter magazine, Catalyst!
When the weather starts to get warmer it reminds us of Psalm 74:17 which says “It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.” This year we are particularly aware of the season change, mostly because it feels like we will soon be heading out of the long season of lockdown and can once more start seeing the people we love and doing the things we love.
This verse also reminds us of God’s creation and governance over the whole world. Although the pandemic has been a dark and difficult time and many things have felt out of control, the seasons still turn at the same speed and God in his faithfulness remains present in all aspects of life.
For Church Army the last season has been many things: it has been a season of stepping up and stepping out in faith to meet the needs of individuals and communities who have been hit hard throughout coronavirus; it has been a season of waiting and trusting God for our next CEO; and it has been a season of new beginnings as we continued to partner with dioceses and launch centres of mission in some of the toughest spots around the UK and Ireland.
In this edition of Catalyst you will find some of the stories of God’s faithfulness through these seasons: you’ll find out about the beginning of new resources, designed to train and develop local leaders in lay evangelism; you’ll read about the new Langley Centre of Mission, bringing hope to the streets and launched while there is no-one on the streets; and you’ll also get to meet our new CEO.
As you read, we pray that you’ll be inspired by what your support makes possible.
