Contact Magazine

Contact Magazine has been running for many years and is issued three times a year. It is a magazine not only for members of AFCU but primarily for the wider military community and military families including those on operations. Contact Magazine aims to reach the wider military community such that it contains signposts to the grace and love of God and the message of the Good News of the gospel. Contact Magazine is designed to be read and passed on and to be given out to friends and colleagues who have not yet understood or connected with the Christian faith. It is also hoped that Contact will be an encouragement to serving AFCU members, as iron sharpens iron so one man sharpen another (Proverbs 27:17). It is story based and colourful and contains a wide range of articles.

You can read online in a flip-book format or download your own copies of Contact in PDF format.
