Waterways Chaplaincy Supporters and Partners

Our relationship with The Church Army

In January 2023 Waterways Chaplaincy became an independent, ecumenical charity within the Church Army family. Wilson Carlile, who established the Church Army in 1882, believed that God’s love is for everyone.  He was passionate about his faith and wanted to share the good news of Jesus with people who would never dream of stepping foot in a church. 

This continues to be the Church Army’s mission today and is why the Waterways Chaplaincy is so grateful to have the support of Church Army as it carries on its mission of ministering to people on the Waterways.
