A study by Young Minds has revealed the pressure that COVID-19 and lockdown has put on young people. Find out how our Bradford Centre of Mission are going the extra mile to offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to the young people at a distance
Susan* was worried because she couldn't get the household items social services told her she needed, but Church Army Evangelist Jane has the right connections to get her the items she needed. (*name changed)
Shocking stats from the Trussell Trust show a massive increase in food parcels being distributed by foodbanks due to COVID-19. Church Army key workers are helping respond to this need.
Our evangelists change lives by bringing hope to people. In Glencairn, Pioneer Evangelist Stephen Whitten is giving people a sense of purpose and community through a garden.
Stephen's* life was chaotic; suffering from schizophrenia and struggling with alcohol abuse, Stephen lost his job and flittered away his inheritance. It is a cycle that many find impossible to get out of. A story from Scunthorpe.
 
Thanks to every single one of our supporters, last year was a year of exciting growth for Church Army. With your help we can reach more people as we seek to bring about our vision for everyone everywhere to encounter God's love, and be empowered to transform their communities through faith shared in words and action.
