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.

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.
