On Friday 16th March 2018 a talk was given for St Paul's Church, Hadley Wood by John Hall about General William Booth, Founder of the Salvation Army, and his remarkable life and times. He lived in Hadley Wood for over 20 years and during that period worked tirelessly for the poor, needy and destitute people of Victorian and Edwardian England and many other countries. He was driven to do this by his passionate Christian faith and conviction that the mark of salvation was to serve others so that they also might be saved.
A recording of the talk with archive film, photographs and a clip of General Booth speaking can be accessed on the link below. It tells an amazing story of one man’s service to humanity.
Barnet Museum was closely involved in the production of this recording and photos from its archive are included in the presentation.
