We seek support in three areas:
Prayer. Prayer for our Scripture Readers and our ministry. You can sign up to receive our prayer materials here.
Finance. You can support our work through donations, monthly standing orders and even collection drums. Our donation page explains how.
Volunteering. We have Advocates across the UK representing SASRA in their local church running prayer groups, sharing our materials and showing our latest video content. If you could offer a little of your time for SASRA, please visit our Volunteering page.
SASRA enjoys a unique opportunity; to share the gospel within the gated communities where the Army and the RAF are based and to accompany them on exercise and when they are on duty. We are authorised by the MOD and operate with the permission of the garrison command and the chaplaincy. We have access and opportunity where the local church does not. In this capacity, SASRA is the “mission arm” of the local church, offering the gospel to our soldiers and Air Force personnel on behalf of the church.
SASRA adapted quickly and well to the restrictions. Staff were furloughed initially but quickly
adopted dispersed and home-working practices, enabling much activity to continue or resume.
Some ASRs have been furloughed but most have continued their witness in a variety of ways,
either through online support to their garrisons, in-person (social distanced) and through their
support of the chain of command—the chaplaincy and unit welfare teams. Scripture Reader
support to junior soldier training continues with little disruption.
SASRA HQ, your Regional Manager or SASRA Representative/Advocate (local volunteers)
can arrange in-person (COVID-permitting) or recorded video deputations for your church.
Please get in touch if you’d like to have someone from SASRA talk to
your church about our gospel work with the British Armed Forces. Alternatively, our latest
videos can be seen here.
