Church Army at Barnack (1907)

The Church Army was founded in England in 1882 by the Revd Wilson Carlile (afterwards prebendary of St Paul’s Cathedral), who banded together an orderly army of soldiers, officers, and a few working men and women, whom he and others trained to act as Church of England evangelists among the outcasts and criminals of the Westminster slums.
