Chalk Farm Salvation Army

Published 13th July 2009 by lucy moore

The Salvation Army in North London has had several crises to deal with recently – not least the care of many of the families made homeless by the fire in a block of flats in which one family was tragically killed. They work tirelessly to serve the people in their communities, building up strong relationships and being there when people need them.
So it was a definite privilege to be invited by Julie Pell to speak to a group of Salvation Army children’s leaders at Chalk Farm and to hear about the Messy Churches already happening through the work of the Army. We were few in number but that made for a friendly chat with lots of questions and answers. The links between the Army’s work with families on the edge and Messy Church are very strong, and it’s great to see the two helping each other out in the building of the Kingdom in the tough world of the city.
