Since 1882 Church Army has been sharing the good news of Jesus with a world which desperately needs to know the hope and the love of our Saviour. We hope you are inspired by the stories of transformation you read about the impact of our work. There are SO many more stories we could tell and there are others waiting to be written in areas were not yet working in. We would love YOU to help us grow our frontline work by taking on the 1882 Challenge between 18-26 September.

Heres how it works: Dream up any challenge around the numbers 18 and 82 which you think your friends and colleagues will sponsor you to do. It could be:

18 laps of your garden

82 lengths of your local swimming pool

1,882 rows of knitting in a scarf

Or something totally different its your challenge!

Set up a fundraising page right here. Then tell all your friends and family what youre doing and remember to give them the link to sponsor you email and social media is the best way to do this. Remember to tell us as well so we can pray for you and share what youre doing with other supporters.

Finally have fun with your challenge and send us any photos and maybe a short description of what you did and why you think its important. Wed love to hear from you. You can email us at fundraising@churcharmy.org or call our Supporter Engagement Team on 0300 123 2113.
