Welcome to Jesus Army Watch.
Last Updated : 21st September 2004
There have been plenty of changes to the Jesus Army Watch web resource since the last update 2 years ago. The menus at the top of each page will guide you through the various sections of the site and Newspaper Clippings Archive.
The Newspaper Clippings Archive has been revamped. Every article has been checked, and known errors corrected. There are an additional 30 articles added since the last update.
The commentary pages for the Newspaper Clippings Archive has also been completely rewritten, and include some of the photos we've taken over the years.
The Information section of the site has been expanded, and now includes basic information on the various Jesus Army groups.
The Links page is now within the Information section of the site, and is split into sections for easier navigation. Many of the links are new ones as a great deal of information regarding the Jesus Army has disappeared from the internet over the last 2 years ! One of the links pages focuses on stories within online News websites, many of which are not contained with the clippings archive.
Included in the archive for the first time are the first two articles relating to the murder of fellowship member Julie Clayton in 1994. Details in the Archive : Death
