New captains take over the corps
Posted on August 30, 2008
The Salvation Army in Eaton Bray is welcoming new leaders this month. Captains Ray Charlton and Linda Charlton have arrived to take over the Salvation Army's work at the Salvation Army Corps (Church) in Booth Place. Captains Ray and Linda have spent the last four years as leaders in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, and have a particular interest in working with people in and around the community. They became Salvation Army officers (ministers) in London after studying and working as cadets for two years at The William Booth College. The couple married in 1976 and have two daughters.
The Captains said: "We have been warmly welcomed at the church and we hope to meet and work alongside other churches in the Eaton Bray area. We believe The Salvation Army still has a place here in Eaton Bray to care for the community, and we are there for anyone who is in need, no matter what denomination or faith. The Salvation Army is not just a charity, we are a church which aims to promote the name of Jesus Christ to the community. We have found the people we have met so far in the village very friendly and we hope that we and the local Salvationists at Eaton Bray will have a long and lasting relationship within the area for many years to come."
Sunday worship takes place at The Salvation Army hall in Booth place at 11 am to which everyone is welcome. There are many weekly activities including coffee mornings on Tuesday once a fortnight, a Fellowship meeting each Wednesday at 2.30pm and Mothers and Toddlers every Thursday Morning starting again in September. There is something for everyone and a warm welcome is guaranteed.
