Our current mission involvements:
Specifically we support Capt Tim & Kathy Hyde and their work at the Southampton Centre of Mission.
Tim Hyde and Ruth Hills are based at our centre of mission in Southampton. Church Army has had a very long association with Southampton, so it is appropriate that it was one of the first cities in the UK where Church Army developed a Centre of Mission. Changing to meet changing needs, its work now has the scope to encourage and enable evangelism across the city from a base on the east side. Tim is based in Sholing Parish where he works alongside St. Mary’s Church, Sholing. This includes running Impact youth group, including fun and games as well as the 'Deep Impact' sessions, which the young people have begun to lead themselves on an issue which is personal to them. They also take the young people on a summer youth camp each year. Tim and his wife Kathy are also involved in a number of community projects, including Repair Cafe, which offers free homemade cakes and a bike repair service and Monty's, which is somewhere for people to sit and chat. Ruth is based in the Bitterne Park area of Southampton, where regular outreach events include: Footsteps, a weekly tots group; Kids Rock, an after-school club in both the local infant and junior schools and EFC (Extreme Fun Club), an evening group for junior aged children. Ruth also leads Hope, which is a faith community in the area, which meets in people's homes and eats together and shares life together.
