Whilst we offer a speaker to visit a church for free all year round, September is the month when we really want to pull out all the stops and celebrate what God has done in and through Church Army. And where would Church Army be without the people and churches who partner with us?
Here are some ways that you can help to join in with the month-long party of praise, thanksgiving and celebration of what we are achieving together:
Invite a speaker to come to your Sunday service – you can request a speaker on our website to visit your church and share some new stories about how God’s love is being shared through our evangelists.
“Yvonne was an excellent speaker and her input and style was much appreciated by the congregation. Yvonne went out of her way to speak to people before worship began and stayed on for coffee afterwards. Her conversation was very helpful to Matt who is considering more full-time work within the Church of England setting! She certainly set a very high standard as a visiting speaker for other to follow as we work our way through this period of vacancy.”
Tim from St Peter
“Des is an exceptionally engaging preacher and story teller!”
Liz from Christ Church
Hold a fundraising event – We have a new Fundraising Pack that will give you all the guidance you need to host a family fun day, a picnic in the park, a bake sale, clothes swap, walking challenge… the possibilities are endless. If you are really brave you could even get sponsored to jump out of a plane like Sarah from our Fundraising Team did last year.
Tell a friend – Church Army have been around since 1882! Why not host a coffee morning or a breakfast where you can tell your friends about the work that we do, our new Speaker Pack is available on request (email us: firstname.lastname@example.org) and will give you all the information you need so you can host like a pro, everyone will think you wrote the book on us!
