The Salvation Army in Russia
The Salvation Army began its ministry in Russia in 1913 and recommenced in 1991 after a break of almost 70 years. This ministry focuses on responding to the social needs of the country, as well as the spiritual needs of its congregations and local communities. The Salvation Army is registered in Russia as a Christian religious organization and is present in 14 locations throughout the country.
This autumn the annual fellowship meeting for women from the Salvation Army in Russia was held in a new format. Instead of having a one big conference, we gathered women in three areas of Russia Command: St. Petersburg (October 6-7), Moscow (October 27-28) and Rostov-on-Don (November 10-11). This made it possible to invite more women to participate.
On October 6-7, 2018, there was a Women Fellowship in St. Petersburg "Mission to Serve".
On September 23, 2018, the Annual Day of Prayer for the victims of human trafficking was held in the Salvation Army all over the world, as well as in Russia. The Salvation Army worldwide is committed to fighting with human trafficking.
