In July 1961, the Rev Gerald Groves CBE became the Chairman of the then NMAFBS, he was the first President of the Central Church of the RAF – St Clement Danes.
Also, at this time the Society had new opportunities:
- With National Service ceasing, the work with the Cadet Forces burgeoned and still represents a significant portion of the Society’s work today.
- Ghanaian Forces requested crested Bibles for that nations servicemen – these links continue to this day, the latest batch of Bibles will go out later in 2018.
- At this time the Society began to produce, booklets that drew on the wisdom of the Bible, but, presented the concepts in easily understandable formats. Again the production of, “Character Training Booklets” still represents a key element of the Society’s ministry.
