Welcome to Chatham Salvation Army, a Christian fellowship where we are attempting to bring ‘Christ to people and people to Christ’.
Happy 145th Birthday Chatham, today we welcome our Newly Appointed Territorial Leaders, Commissioners Anthony & Gillian Cotterill. No strangers to us at Chatham as they were soldiers of the Corps for six years when they were the Divisional leaders. We look forward to a day of challenge and celebration. It is a privilege to have our territorial leaders and we do not take that for granted. We also welcome, supporting the TC our own Divisional Leaders, Mark and Linda Herbert.
May today be a day of celebrating the past and thanking God for Faithfulness by so many people over 145 years, but largely can we all be asking God to bless and be part of our future lives and Corps. We want God to not only be central in all we do but God to fulfill his purpose through us here in Chatham.
Tonight, we have Anthony and Gill on the Sofa in an informal setting to hear something of their journey – you could always come and be prepared to ask a question to them.
God Bless Chatham Citadel Corps on this its celebration day
