Church Army

The Church Army shares faith through words and action; finding out what each community needs and sharing Jesus with them in their context. They work in close partnership with local churches.

There is a Discovery Day on November 9th in Blackpool for anyone who wants to see if Church Army is what they are being called to. For more information and to book on (free lunch included!) click here.

We have a Church Army Evangelists in training in the Diocese. Watch this video to meet him

The Church Army DARE strategy has four objectives:

  • Doing evangelism
  • Advocating evangelism
  • Resourcing evangelism
  • Enabling evangelism

The Church Army values are:

  • Prayerful -  We listen for God's voice and want to be obedient to him. We want to be like Jesus in our actions and witness. 
  • Expectant - We are hope-filled, expecting God to do new things among us.
  • Risk-taking - We have a long heritage as a pioneering movement. We give colleagues permission to seek to do new things.
  • Accountable - We are accountable to God and others. We want to be reliable and live responsibly to high professional standards.
  • Collaborative - We are committed to partner with those who share our values; we believe it enhances our work.
  • Generous - We want to model God's generosity to others.
  • Unconditional - We will serve anyone regardless of their age, gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, status or circumstances because God loves everyone and everyone is significant in his eyes.

Are you passionate about evangelism?

  • Do you want to be resourced to share your faith with others?
  • Would you like to meet with other likeminded people?

The process to join the Church Army Mission Community is a journey where you explore being a member of the Community. Usually it involves a conversation with someone from the Community Team for your region, a visit to a Discovery Day and making promises to join in a CA Community context.

There is an application form, references and if you are involved in ministry, they’ll request a DBS check as part of the process. If you would like to find out a bit more, then you can browse the webpage at this link.

Have a look at the Discovery Days page where you could register to visit the Home of Church Army in Sheffield.
