Church Army

Church Army. Founded in 1882 by the Revd Wilson Carlile, a 35-year-old Church of England curate in Kensington, its organization was consciously modelled on that of the Salvation Army, even to the use of the military title of ‘captain’ for its officers. Like Booth's Salvation Army, Carlile's Church Army was dedicated to evangelism and social and moral welfare work among the poor and disadvantaged. A predominantly lay organization, including men and women, in recent years some members have been accepted for ordination. Carlile remained closely involved with the Church Army for sixty years, until his death in 1942.

Revd Dr John R. Guy

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
