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.
Summer in the Salvation Army began actively. In June, the churches of the Army in different cities organized many different events for children and young people, that for sure will be remembered for a long time by salvationists and the children who joined them with their fun, new impressions and spiritual content.
The CEC General Assembly brought together in Novi Sad, Serbia, participants from diverse Christian denominations, ecumenical and faith-based organisations, and EU offices, from across Europe. From May 31 to June 6, 2018, Major Vadim Khurin, as a representative of the Salvation Army in Russia, took part in the CEC General Assembly.
AS part of a programme linked to the 2018 FIFA World Cup taking place in Russia, a Salvation Army camp brought together more than 50 men from across the country. Based in Moscow, the men's camp took the theme Mission Possible and provided opportunity to learn together and discuss what it is to be Christian men in the 21st century. The main focus was on attitudes towards women.
